Creating Network profile for vC Ops 5.8 – Part 2

In this article ,we will see that how to configure the network protocol profile for vC Ops vApps using vSphere web-client. Network protocol profiles provide a network identity to vApps. A network protocol profile is a pre-defined network configuration that is assigned to a network used by a vApps. The vApp can then leverage vCenter Server to automatically provide an IP configuration to its virtual machines. vC Ops OVF file contains “Analytical VM” and “User interface VM” vApps. We need to set the static IP address for both VM’s but however network profiles are mandatory to power on these vApps. Let’s see how we can create network protocol profile for vC Ops vApps.

1. Login to the vSphere web Client .

You can restrict the network profile to use to specific range of IP address by enabling the network pool. In our case,we are going to set the static IPs for vC Ops vApps . So do not enable the “IP pool”

8.You can skip IPV6 if you are not using it.
