So far, we've provided the infrastructure for continuous delivery / continuous integration, but it's been for those other guys.
Is that odd?
Let's try using the principles provided for more infrastructure-oriented reasons. Let's build a network lab using NSX-T.
First, we need some form of a mutable router. Normally, that'd be whatever flavor's "in production," but the specific implementation doesn't really matter.
First, we need to outline what basic functionality would need to be in place for this basic image to work:
- Management Plane isolation: Build a separate "routing table," or VRF for the first applied interface.
- Automatic connectivity. We should have some way to automatically get network connectivity separate from the "data plane," and perform configuration loading, command invocations, and software lifecycle management.
- Enable inbound management protocols.
