You can use this workflow to add a pool of IP addresses to the NSX Edge DHCP service.

NSX Edge provides DHCP service to bind assigned IP addresses to MAC addresses, helping to prevent MAC spoofing attacks. All virtual machines protected by an NSX Edge can obtain IP addresses dynamically from the NSX Edge DHCP service.


  1. Click the Workflows tab and then navigate to Library > NSX > NSX workflows > Add IP pools to DHCP.
  2. Click the green Start Workflow icon.
  3. Select the NSX Connection object. If not set, select the connection from the NSX inventory from the vRO inventory view.
  4. Enter the Edge ID.
  5. Select the DHCP pool. If not set, specify the IP address range, DNS settings and lease parameters of the DHCP pools.
  6. Click Submit.
