You can add an isolated data center group network, which is accessible only to VMs in the data center group. VMs outside of this network have no connectivity to it, regardless of whether they are connected to other networks in the same data center group.


  • Verify that you are an organization administrator.

  • Verify that you have created a data center group with an NSX network provider type.


  1. In the top navigation bar, click Networking.
  2. On the Networks tab, click New.
  3. On the Scope page, select Data Center Group, and select a group with an NSX network provider in which to create the network.
  4. On the Network Type page, select Isolated and click Next.
  5. Enter a meaningful name for the network.
  6. Enter the Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) settings for the network.
    • If you are using IP spaces, select an IP space from the drop-down menu and a subnet prefix.
    • If you are not using IP spaces, enter a CIDR in the format network_gateway_IP_address/subnet_prefix_length, for example,
  7. Enter a description of the organization VDC network.
  8. Click Next.
  9. (Optional) To reserve one or more IP addresses for assignment to virtual machines that require static IP addresses, configure the Static IP Pools for the network.
    1. Enter the IP address or range of IP addresses, and click Add.
      To add multiple static IP addresses or ranges, repeat this step.
    2. (Optional) To modify or remove IP addresses and ranges, click Modify or Remove.
  10. (Optional) Configure the DNS settings.
    Option Action
    Primary DNS Enter the IP address for your primary DNS server.
