You can edit how IP addresses are allocated for the vApp.
- For automatic (transient) IP allocation to work, you must use the vSphere Client and configure an IP pool. See Configuring IP Pools.
- On the Summary page of the vApp, click Edit Settings.
- Click IP Allocation Policy in the Options list.
- Select an IP allocation option.
Option Description Fixed IP addresses are manually configured. No automatic allocation is performed.

DHCP A DHCP server is used to allocate the IP addresses. The addresses assigned by the DHCP server are visible in the OVF environments of virtual machines started in the vApp.
