Before members of a business group can request virtual machines, fabric administrators must create network profiles to define the subnet and routing configuration for those virtual machines. Each network profile is configured for a specific network port group or virtual network to specify the IP address and the routing configuration for virtual machines provisioned to that network.

Repeat this procedure six times to create the following external network profiles.
