Add an organization vDC network to a vApp to make the network available to virtual machines in the vApp.


Click My Cloud.


In the left pane, click vApps, right-click, and select Open.


On the Networking tab, select the Show networking details check box.


Click the Add Network button.


Select Organization vDC Network and click Next.


Select an organization vDC network and click Finish.

vCloud Director adds the organization vDC network and displays it in the network list.


(Optional) Select the Fence vApp check box.

The connection changes from Direct to Fenced for all organization vDC networks in the vApp. Fencing allows identical virtual machines in different vApps to be powered on without conflict by isolating the MAC and IP addresses of the virtual machines.

When fencing is enabled and the vApp is powered on, an isolated network is created from the organization vDC's network pool. A vShield Edge is created and attached to both the isolated network and the organization vDC network. Traffic going to and from the virtual machines pass through vShield Edge, which translates the IP address using NAT and proxy-AR, which allows a router to pass traffic between two networks using the same IP space.


Click Apply.

Connect a virtual machine in the vApp to the network.
