A fabric administrator can create an external network profile to define external network properties and a range of static IP addresses.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as a fabric administrator.


The network profile information identifies the external network properties and specifies settings for an existing network. An external network profile is a requirement of NAT and routed network profiles.


A fabric administrator can define zero (0) or more ranges of static IP addresses for use in provisioning a network. An external network profile must have at least one static IP range for use with routed and NAT network profiles.
