Create logical networks to provide network access to workload VMs.
About this task
Your SDDC starts with a single default logical network, sddc-cgw-network-1. You can use the HTML5 vSphere Client to create additional logical networks.
- Log in to the vSphere Client for your SDDC.
You cannot create logical networks using the vSphere Web Client.
- Select .
- Select Logical Networks.
- Click Add.
- In the Name text field, enter a name for the logical network.
- In the CIDR Block text field, enter a CIDR block in xxx.xxx.xxx.0/YY format.
Prefix length should be between 22 and 30, because your logical network must have no more than 1000 ports.
- (Optional) : Select Enabled to enable DHCP.
If you enable DHCP on a logical network and you have configured an on-premises DNS server, you must edit your compute gateway VPN to enable DNS queries to be correctly forwarded over the VPN. Select cgw-dns-network as one of the local networks for the VPN.
- (Optional) : If you enabled DHCP, enter the domain name to use with VMs attached to this logical network in the DNS Domain Name text box.
- Click OK.
What to do next
After you have created the logical network, you can attach VMs to it. See Attach a VM to or Detach a VM from a Logical Network.
Optionally, you can use this logical network as part of a VPN connection to your on-premises data center or to an Amazon VPC. See
