You can manage one or more named ranges of static IPv4 network addresses for use in provisioning a network.

About this task

During provisioning, each new routed network allocates the next available range and uses that allocated range as its IP space. The IP blocks are obtained from the third-party IPAM provider. During provisioning, a routed network is allocated from the block with a subnet mask that matches the provided range subnet mask.

Procedure

  1. Select an address space from the Address space drop-down menu to limit the available IP blocks that are available for provisioning.

    After you add one or more IP blocks in the section below the Address space text box, you can no longer select an Address space value. A routed network profile cannot span more than one address space.

  2. Add one or more IP blocks, or IPAM provider ranges, by using the provider-specific search syntax or selecting from the Search drop-down menu.

    The IP blocks are retrieved from the third-party IPAM provider.

    Selecting a network range may result in an empty list when using a third-party IPAM provider. For details, see Knowledge Base article 2148656 at http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2148656.
