The network profile information identifies the routed network properties, its underlying external network profile, and other values used in provisioning the network.


  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a fabric administrator.

  • Create an External Network Profile.

  • Verify that the NSX logical router is configured in the vSphere Client to use the routed network profile. See NSX Administration Guide.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Reservations > Network Profiles.
  2. Select New Network Profile > Routed.
  3. Enter a name and, optionally, a description.
  4. Select an external network profile from the drop-down menu.
  5. Type a mask address in the Subnet mask text box.

    For example,

  6. Type a mask address in the Range subnet mask text box.

    For example,

  7. Type an IP address in the Base IP text box.
  8. (Optional) In the DNS/WINS group, type values as needed.

    The external network profile provides these values, which you can edit.
