Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Organization vDCs in the left pane.

2

Double-click the organization vDC name to open the organization vDC.

3

Click the Edge Gateways tab, right-click the edge gateway name and select Edge Gateway Services.

Click the DHCP tab and select Enable DHCP.

Click Add and type a range of IP addresses.

Click OK.

vCloud Director updates the edge gateway to provide DHCP services.

Note

If the DNS settings on a DHCP-enabled edge gateway are changed, the edge gateway no longer provides DHCP services. To correct this issue, disable and reenable DHCP on the edge gateway.
