Before members of a business group can request virtual machines, fabric administrators must create network profiles to define the subnet and routing configuration for those virtual machines.

Each network profile is configured for a specific network port group or virtual network and specifies the IP address and routing configuration for virtual machines that are provisioned to that network.

Verify that the Create Logical Switches for Business Groups has been created.
