NSX Service Deployments can either be mapped to a specific Network, and Datastore that is unique across the cluster, or be set to Specified on host.

  • When deploying an NSX Service deployment, you see errors similar to:
    No agent network configuration found on host or No agent data store configuration found on the host.
  • In the NSX Manager vsm.log file, you see entries similar to:
