Fabric administrators can assign a network profile to a reservation to enable static IP assignment to machines provisioned on that reservation.

Network profiles can also be assigned to blueprints by using the custom property VirtualMachine.NetworkN.ProfileName. If a network profile is specified in both the blueprint and the reservation, the profile specified in the blueprint takes precedence.
