If the network services, such as DHCP settings or firewall settings which are associated with an organization virtual data center network are not working as expected, you can reset the network.

When you reset the organization virtual data center network, you force the network DHCP service gateway to be redeployed. This operation results in a temporary disruption of the DHCP services and no network services are available while the network is resetting.


  • This operation requires the rights included in the predefined Organization Administrator role or an equivalent set of rights.

  • The network is not connected to any virtual machines, vApps, or other networks.


  1. On the Virtual Datacenters dashboard screen, click the card of the virtual data center you want to explore, and select Networks from the left panel.
  2. Select an organization VDC network.
  3. Click Reset and confirm the reset operation.
