A fabric administrator can define one or more ranges of static IP addresses for use in provisioning a network.

During multi-machine provisioning, every new multi-machine routed network allocates the next available subnet range and uses it as its IP space.

1

Click the IP Ranges tab.

2

Click Generate Ranges.

You must type the subnet mask, range subnet mask, and base IP addresses on the Network Profile Information tab before you can generate IP ranges. Starting with the base IP address, vCloud Automation Center generates ranges based on the range subnet mask.

For example, vCloud Automation Center generates ranges of 254 IP addresses if the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0 and the range subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.

3

Click New Network Range.

The New Network Range dialog box appears.

4

Enter a name and, optionally, a description.

5

Type an IP address in the Starting IP address text box.

This IP address must match the base IP address in the routed network profile.

6

Enter an IP address in the Ending IP address text box.

7

Click OK.

The newly defined IP address range appears in the Defined Ranges list.

8

Click OK.
