Suballocate into multiple static IP pools the IP pools that the external networks on an edge gateway provide.


Verify that the IP addresses that you want to allocate to the edge gateway are not used outside of vCloud Director.
Note: Allocating IP addresses to an edge gateway through sub-allocation is a process where the provider assigns ownership of IP addresses to the gateway. vCloud Director automatically configures the appropriate gateway interface with the secondary addresses during the sub-allocation process, which can cause IP address conflicts if any of the IP addresses are used outside of vCloud Director.
