You can add an internal (isolated) or routed Org VDC network. You can add a mix of internal or routed Org VDC networks to meet the needs of your organization.
About this task
You can add a mix of internal (isolated) or routed Org VDC networks to meed the needs of your organization. For example, you may want to isolate a network that contains sensitive information, while creating a separate network that is associated with an edge gateway and connected to the Internet.
This operation requires the rights included in the predefined Organization Administrator role or an equivalent set of rights.
- Navigate to Network > Org VDC Networks.
- Click +ADD to add a new Org VDC network.
- Enter the following values:
Enter a meaningful name for your org VDC network.
Enter a description for the Org VDC network.
Share this network with other VDCs in this organization
Makes the organization VDC network available to other organization VDCs in the organization. One potential use case for this would be if an application exists within an Organization VDC that has a reservation or allocation pool set as the allocation model. In this case, it may not have enough room to run more VMs. As a solution, you could create a secondary Org VDC with pay-as-you-go and run more VMs on that network on a temporary basis.Note:
The Organization VDCs must be backed by the same provider VDC.
Select the type of Org VDC networkd you wish to add. You can add an Internal (Isolated) Org VDC Network - Accessible only by this organization. Only virtual machines in this organization can connect to and see traffic on this network. This network provides an organization with an isolated, private network that multiple virtual machines and vApps can connect to. This network provides no connectivity to machines outside this organization. Machines outside of this organization have no connectivity to machines in the organization. Or, you can add a Routed Org VDC network--This network also provides controlled access to an external network. System administrators and organization administrators can configure network address translation (NAT), firewall, and VPN settings to make specific virtual machines accessible from the external network.
For routed network connecting to an existing edge gateway. Select the edge gateway you wish to associate with the organization VDC network.
Allow Guest VLAN
For routed network connecting to an existing edge gateway. Setting the VDC network as a guest VLAN enables guests to access the network.
Create as subinterface
To extend an organization VDC network, you must convert it to a subinterface type, which allows vCloud Director software to identify the network it will use to extend via L2 VPN. The vCloud Director solution, with the help of NSX network virtualization, will create a trunk interface type for this network.
- Enter the following Address and DNS values:
Enter the IP address for the edge gateway.
Enter the network mask for the network. For example, 255.255.255.0.
Enter the IP address for your primary DNS server.
Enter the IP address for your secondary DNS server.
Enter your DNS suffix. The DNS suffix is the DNS name without including the hostname.
Enter IP addresses or an IP range for a static IP pool.
