Upgrade VMware environments protected with GravityZone from vCNS to NSX

This section describes the upgrade procedure from VMWare vShield to NSX.

This information helps the Bitdefender Enterprise Support team to investigate and resolve the issues you encountered with upgrading from vShield to NSX.

Bitdefender GravityZone continues to protect VMware environments after upgrading from vCNS to NSX, making this a safe experience. To make sure your network remains secured, follow these steps:

  1. Update the Bitdefender GravityZone Virtual Appliance to a version higher than 5.1.25-526. This way, you will be able to integrate GravityZone with NSX.

  2. Uninstall Bitdefender Tools from all Windows/Linux machines in your network.

    Note

    After update, all File and Process exclusions will no longer work on Windows/Linux machines.

  3. Uninstall all Bitdefender Security Server deployments. In VMware NSX, all of them are managed through vSphere Web Console and not through GravityZone Control Center.

  4. Migrate your VMware environment to NSX. Choose your preferred method:

    1. Install NSX over the existing vCNS, following the instructions described in NSX Upgrade Guide for vShield Endpoint (English).

      Note

      Carefully run over the "Upgrade to Guest Introspection in NSX for vShield Endpoint" section, as it is a very important step (see upgrade-to-guest-introspection.png).

    2. Completely remove vCNS and deploy a clean NSX environment:

      1. Uninstall vShield components by following the instructions described in the "Uninstalling vShield Components" chapter of vShield Installation and Upgrade Guide (English).

      2. Remove the vShield plug-in from vCenter, using the guidelines in the KB article Removing or Disabling unwanted plug-ins from vCenter Server and vCenter Server Appliance (English).

      3. Deploy NSX, following the instructions from the Installation Guide (English).

  5. Go to the GravityZone Control Center > Configuration page and select the Virtualization tab.

  6. Edit the existing vCenter with vShield integration by clicking the corresponding Edit button in the Actions column.

  7. In the configuration window, under the Protection section, select NSX.

  8. Complete the Bitdefender integration with NSX. For more information, refer to the "Installing Protection > Configure Control Center Settings > Virtualization > Integrating with vCenter Server" section of GravityZone Installation Guide.

    Note

    You can find the Installation Guide link in the Help & Support page of Control Center.
