In the IPAM use case, as a fabric administrator, you must create network profiles to define the subnet and routing configuration for virtual machines. Each network profile is configured for a specific network port group or virtual network and specifies the IP address and routing configuration for virtual machines that are provisioned to that network. Members of a business group can request virtual machines.

Prerequisites

Verify that the logical switches for business groups have been created.
