Within your Organization in the Voonami Cloud, you can create additional networks as needed.

The following will serve as a guide for adding a network and then assigning that network to VMs within a vApp.

Create a New Org Network

  • Log into your Org on the Voonami Cloud using your personalized URL - Login to Cloud Portal
  • Select the Administration tab
  • Select your Virtual Datacenter
  • Select the Org VDC Networks tab
  • Select the Green Plus icon to add a new network of one of the following types:
    • Isolated network just for use within the Org
      • Select "Create an isolated network..." and click next.
      • Enter the appropriate Network information you would like for this network. It is recommended to use Private IP space. Below is an example:
        • Gateway address:
        • Network Mask:
        • Primary DNS:
        • Secondary DNS:
        • DNS Suffix: (optional, use if appropriate)
        • Static IP Pool (this is the range of IP that will be assigned to new VMs on the network and should not include the gateway IP address): -
      • Provide a name (required) and description (optional) for the network and click next.
      • Review the information for accuracy and click finish.
    • Routed network that will connect to the internet through your Edge Gateway firewall that has been configured on your Org.
