Just like on-premises, VIrtual Machines inside the cloud SDDC need a network to connect to so they can communicate between themselves and other network services. Within VMware Cloud on AWS, those networks are provided by NSX-T Logical Switches and are called Network Segments. By default, a single Network Segment is created, named sddc-cgw-network-1 and is connected to the Compute Gateway. Create two new Network Segments, using the Cloud Console:

  1. Open VMware Cloud on AWS from the Cloud Services Console.
  2. Select 'VIEW DETAILS' for the SDDC in the VMware Cloud on AWS UI
  3. Click on the ‘Network & Security’ tab
  4. Beneath the ‘Network’ section, select ‘Segments’
  5. Click ‘ADD SEGMENTS'
  6. Create a segment with the following settings:
    • Name = 'VMC-192.168.8-Static'
    • Type = 'Routed'
    • Gateway = '192.168.8.1/24'
    • DHCP = 'Disabled'
  7. Click 'SAVE'
  8. Once Again, click ‘ADD SEGMENTS'
  9. Create a segment with the following settings:
    • Name = 'VMC-192.168.9-DHCP'
    • Type = 'Routed'
    • Gateway = '192.168.9.1/24'
    • DHCP = 'Enabled'
    • DHCP IP Range = '192.168.9.2-192.168.9-254
    • DNS Suffix can be left blank
  10. Click 'SAVE'
