When you install vCloud Usage Meter, you must create an associated IP pool.

About this task

Because the OVF template uses network properties, vCloud Usage Meter might not work correctly unless assigned networks have an associated IP pool. If not, the vCloud Usage Meter virtual machine does not power on and users get a message that there is no associated network protocol profile.

To configure an IP Pool for your vCloud Usage Meter appliance, follow the steps in Add a Network Protocol Profile topic in the VMware vSphere Documentation Center.
