External networks belong to a single enterprise and may have public or private IP address ranges used in more than one virtual datacenter.

Before you begin:

  • If you are using a network virtualization system to manage external networks, first precreate the networks in the network virtualization systems. You will need the network address, gateway, and VLAN or VXLAN tag.
  • If you are using standard networking, you will need the VLAN tag to use with this network

  • If you are using vCloud Director, you can onboard external networks and manage them in the virtual datacenters view. See vCloud Director Integration

To create an external network:

  1. Go to Infrastructure → Private → select Datacenter → Datacenter details → Network → External
  2. Click the  button  and enter the details
