How do I create an Org VDC network?

This network can be selected for all new vApps and virtual machines. You can create an isolated (without internet access) or routed network (with internet access).

1. Go to Administration. Double-click on your virtual data center.

2. Go to the Org VDC Networks tab in the pop-up horizontal bar and click on Green +.

Click on Next.

5. In the Name and Description tab, assign a name and add a network description.
