Troubleshoot Service Composer implementation issues in NSX

 
I don’t see too many problems with Service composer implementation, in fact, it’s pretty straight forward. I have already written a section on Security Group creation/Deletion. The only left is to create security policies, attach them to Security Groups, or Export the Configuration. If there are any issues you have, the first place I would check are the NSX Manager logs. To view the logs, log into the NSX Manager via SSH and run the following command.
 

nsxmgr-l-01a> show manager log

In the instance above, I have associated the Security Policy Blah with the Security Group Test, and simultaneously detached the Security Group Domain Admins. If I were to have any issues with service composer, this is the only place I can think of checking. With that said, if anyone else has any feedback on what to study for this section, please let me know!
