When you deploy vCloud Usage Meter, you must create an associated network protocol profile.

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

To configure a network protocol profile for your vCloud Usage Meter appliance, you must use an IPv4 configuration.

For more information about configuring a network protocol profile, see Add a Network Protocol Profile in the VMware vSphere Documentation.
