After you create an organization VDC network, you can modify its name, description, DNS settings, sharing, and static IP pools.


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


  1. On the Administration tab, click Virtual Datacenters in the left pane.
  2. Double-click an organization VDC name to open the VDC.
  3. On the Org VDC Networks tab, right-click a network name and click Properties to open the Network Properties page.
  4. (Optional) Modify network General properties.
    1. Type a name and optional description for the network.
    2. Select Share this network with other VDCs in the organization to make the network available in other VDCs in the organization.
  5. (Optional) Modify the Network Specification.
    1. Modify DNS settings for the network.
      Option Description
      Use gateway DNS This option, which configures the network to use the same DNS settings as the Edge Gateway, is available only if the gateway has the Use default gateway for DNS relay property enabled.
      Primary DNS, Secondary DNS, DNS suffix If you do not select Use gateway DNS, you can provide your own DNS configuration values. Your system administrator can suggest appropriate values for networks in your organization.
    2. Modify the Static IP pool for this network.
      If you want this network to reserve one or more addresses for assignment to VMs that require a static IP address, enter the address or range of addresses and click Add. Repeat this step to add multiple static IP pools.
