Before members of a business group can request virtual machines, fabric administrators must create network profiles. The network profiles define the subnet and routing configuration for the virtual machines.

About this task

Each network profile is configured for a specific network port group or virtual network. The network profile specifies the IP address and routing configuration for virtual machines that are provisioned to that network.

Prerequisites
