After you create an organization VDC network, you can connect the network to an edge gateway.

Starting with version 10.1, VMware Cloud Director supports connecting to an edge gateway for organization VDC networks that are backed by either NSX Data Center for vSphere or NSX-T Data Center.


This operation requires either one of the predefined organization administrator or system administrator roles, or a role that includes the Organization VDC Network: Edit Properties and the VDC Group: View right published to the organization.


  1. In the top navigation bar, click Networking.
  2. Click the name of the organization VDC network that you want to connect to an edge gateway.
  3. On the General tab, click Edit.
  4. Click Connection.
  5. Connect the network to an edge gateway.
    1. Toggle on the Connect to an edge gateway option.
    2. Select the edge gateway to connect to from the list of available edge gateways.
    3. Select the interface type.
    4. To allow a guest VLAN, toggle the Guest VLAN Allowed option.
  6. Click Save.


The organization VDC network connects to an edge gateway and converts from isolated to routed.
