NetScaler SD-WAN VPX-VW Configuration Requirements
Before you can install and deploy a SD-WAN VPX-SE 9.3 as a client appliance, the SD-WAN Master Control Node (MCN) and existing client nodes must be upgraded to Virtual WAN version 8.1 or above. For information on updating and upgrading your CloudBridge (SD-WAN) deployment, please refer to the Citrix CloudBridge 9.0.0 Release Notes, available on the Citrix Documentation Portal (http://docs.citrix.com/).
The following section provides instructions for downloading the SD-WAN VPX-SE installation files.
Downloading the SD-WAN VPX-VW Installation Files
Before beginning the installation, you must download or copy the SD-WAN VPX-SE OVF template (.ova file) to the local PC you will be using to connect to the ESXi server that will host your SD-WAN VPX-SE.
To download the SD-WAN VPX-SE installation files, go to the following URL:
Instructions for downloading the software are provided on this site.

The following section provides a summary of the steps and procedures involved in installing and configuring a SD-WAN VPX-SE Virtual Appliance.
SD-WAN VPX-SE Virtual Appliance Minimum Configuration Requirements
The minimum configuration requirements for the SD-WAN VPX-SE Virtual Machine are as follows:
SD-WAN VPX-SE Virtual Appliance Interface Specifications
The SD-WAN VPX-SE interface specifications are as follows:
SD-WAN VPX-SE supports a maximum number of five interfaces.
The first interface is reserved for use as the Management IP Address for the Virtual Appliance.
Before powering up the new VM for the SD-WAN VPX-SE Virtual Appliance, you must configure and assign additional interfaces (one each) for the LAN and WAN.
For SD-WAN VPX-SE, bridges are not created by default for the data interface (for example, eth1 and eth2).
Supported Topology Deployments
Deployments that are supported for hardware SD-WAN Appliances are also supported for SD-WAN VPX-SE. SD-WAN VPX-SE supports both 1-arm and In-line deployments. WCCP is not supported.
