You can assign a network profile to a reservation, for example to enable static IP assignment for machines that are provisioned on that reservation.

You can also assign a network profile to a blueprint by using the custom property VirtualMachine.NetworkN.ProfileName on the Properties tab of the New Blueprint or Blueprint Properties page.

If you specify a network profile in a reservation and a blueprint, the blueprint value takes precedence. For example, if you specify a network profile in the blueprint by using the VirtualMachine.NetworkN.ProfileName custom property and in a reservation that is used by the blueprint, the network profile specified in the blueprint takes precedence. However, if the custom property is not used in the blueprint, and you select a network profile for a machine NIC, vRealize Automation uses the reservation network path for the machine NIC for which the network profile is specified.
