Add an external network to register vSphere network resources for vCloud Director to use. You can create organization vDC networks that connect to an external network.

A vSphere port group is available. If the port group uses VLAN, it can use only a single VLAN. Port groups with VLAN trunking are not supported.

VMware recommends using an auto-expanding static port group.
