Summary

VMware NSX 6.2.3 and NSX 6.2.4 have added a new type of license called NSX for vShield Endpoint. This license allows integration with Deep Security for the purpose of performing hypervisor-based Anti-Malware and Integrity Monitoring only.

If this NSX license is used and you need the Deep Security network security capabilities, then a Deep Security Agent is required. For more information, refer to the NSX 6.2.3 Release Note and NSX 6.2.4 Release Note.

Know more about the compatibility details of Deep Security with VMware NSX 6.2.3 and NSX 6.2.4.

 
For supported VMware EPSEC and NetX lib version, refer to Deep Security Best Practice Guide Section 1.3.
To collect debug logs and troubleshoot issues, refer to Deep Security Log Collection Checklist and Troubleshooting Guidelines for Deep Security.

Below are the information about the compatibility depending on the license keys:

  • NSX 6.2.3 and NSX 6.2.4 are activated by NSX Standard, Advanced, or Enterprise license keys.
    This is compatible with Deep Security 9.5 Service Pack (SP) 1 and 9.6 SP1. You may refer to the detailed Deep Security and VMware compatibility matrix table.
  • NSX 6.2.3 and NSX 6.2.4 are activated by NSX for vShield Endpoint license key.
    In general, it is compatible with Deep Security 9.5 SP1 and 9.6 SP1. However, there are known limitations:
    • When deploying DSVA from NSX manager, the "VMware Network Fabric" missing dependency alert will pop up. It is suggested to ignore the alert and force the DSVA deployment by clicking Failed and then click Resolve. The DSVA deployment will be successful, but the status of Trend Micro Deep Security still shows "Failed". You can ignore it as no Deep Security function actually fails.

      Missing Dependencies

      Failed status

    • The Event-Based Task of default NSX Security Group Change will not be triggered until manually synchronized with vCenter/NSX Manager. For example, when a computer is moved from an unprotected security group to a protected security group, the protection will not be triggered automatically until the next manual NSX sync. The reason is that Deep Security Manager cannot reliably determine the NSX Security Group membership with NSX for vShield Endpoint licensed. Therefore, Event-Based Tasks using this property of the virtual machine (VM) is not supported.

    • When you need to use Deep Security Firewall, DPI, WRS, and Log Inspection function, it is required to implement Combined Mode.
