You cannot change the interface of an existing network by editing the network properties. If you have to change the interface of a network from internal to subinterface or distributed routing, for example, you must convert the interface of the network.
Cross-VDC networks cannot be converted.
This operation requires the rights included in the predefined Organization Administrator role or an equivalent set of rights.
- On the Virtual Datacenters dashboard screen, click the card of the virtual data center you want to explore, and select Networks from the left panel.
- Select the network you want to convert.
- Click Convert to.
- Choose an option and click OK.
The options vary depending on the interface type of the network.
Select Convert to Internal to connect the network to a free interface on the attached gateway.
Select Convert to Subinterface to connect the network as a subinterface to the trunk interface on the attached gateway.
Select Convert to Distribute Routing so that the network uses distributed routing associated with the attached gateway.
- Wait until the network converts to the selected type.
