Network information settings determine the transport zone, network profile to use when provisioning, and reservation policy.


If your multi-machine service consists of an NSX logical router that includes routed and private networks, machines on the routed networks cannot access machines on the private networks and vice-versa within that multi-machine service. If you require connectivity between the machines on the routed and private network, add a second virtual network adapter (NIC) to the machines on the routed network and also connect the second adapter to the private network.

See NSX Administration Guide.

Specify Build Information for a Multi-Machine Blueprint.

Verify that a fabric administrator created at least one external network profile. See Create an External Network Profile.

Verify that a vCenter Server administrator prepared transport zones and clusters.


Click the Network tab.


Select a transport zone from the Transport zone drop-down menu.

A vCenter Server administrator creates transport zones and adds clusters to them. A transport zone defines which clusters the multi-machine networks span.


Choose a network profile.


Select a reservation policy from the Reservation policy drop-down menu.

This option requires additional configuration by a fabric administrator to create a reservation policy.
