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

Create an External Network Profile.

Verify that the NSX logical router is configured in the vSphere Client to use the routed network profile. See NSX Administration Guide.


Select Infrastructure > Reservations > Network Profiles.


Select New Network Profile > Routed.


Enter a name and, optionally, a description.


Select an external network profile from the drop-down menu.


Type a mask address in the Subnet mask text box.

For example,


Type a mask address in the Range subnet mask text box.

For example,


Type an IP address in the Base IP text box.


(Optional) In the DNS/WINS group, type values as needed.

The external network profile provides these values, which you can edit.

A routed network profile requires an IP range. For information on creating an IP range, see Configure Routed Network Profile IP Ranges.
