  • Creating sub interfaces on NSX-V 6.3.2/6.3.3 edges fails.
  • You see a blank error message similar to:


This is a known issue affecting VMware NSX for vSphere 6.3.2 and 6.3.3.

Currently, there is no resolution.

To work around this issue, apply a REST API call to add the sub interface.

Note: If you have NSX for vSphere 6.3.3 deployed,  you can first create the interface through the web User Interface (UI).
  1. In order to add the sub interfaces, do a GET API call to retrieve the existing setting of the targeted interface, and then revise the returned XML body to add the sub-interface. This procedure is to maintain the existing configuration for the interface.

    GET https://NSXMGR_IP/api/4.0/edges/edgeId/vnics/index

  2. Apply the REST API call.

    For example:

    POST https://NSXMGR_IP/api/4.0/edges/edge-8/vnics/?action=patch
