Configure route redistribution in NSX

 
Route Redistribution has to be configured for cross-protocol route sharing, meaning a Distributed Logical Router (DLR), or Edge Services Gateway (ESG) is using more than one routing protocol.
 
Step 1. Log into the vSphere Web Client and navigate to Networking & Security -> NSX Edges and double click the Edge device for which you would like to configure Route Redistribution

Step 2. Select Routing -> Route Redistribution and hit the Edit Button at the top right. Select which protocols you are using, then click OK

Step 3. Optionally, if you have IP Prefixes – Click the + sign under IP Prefixes, specify the Name and IP/Network (CIDR) then click ok.

Step 4. Click the + sign under Route Redistribution table then specify the Prefix (if applicable), Learner Protocol, Allow Learning From and Action then click OK.
 
Note: Learner protocol is the protocol that will learn the routes from the other protocols. Allow Learning From, will be the protocols from which the routes should be learned.
