vCloud Director External Networks

External networks provide the interface to the Internet for virtual servers connected to external organization vDC networks. External networks are imported both as a network zone and as a network within that zone. Importing external networks as network zones enables administrators to configure billing for external network usage. Currently, you can only view external networks in OnApp.

To view external networks imported as network zones into OnApp:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Settings menu.
  2. Click the Network Zones icon. The screen that appears will show all network zones with the following details:
    • Label - the name of the zone
    • Location group - the location group with which the zone is associated

Click a zone's label (name) to see the list of networks assigned to it.

At Control Panel > Settings > Network Zones there is an Actions button next to the imported external networks which enables you to edit or delete networks. However, these changes are not synchronized with vCloud Director. Therefore, it is not recommended to edit or delete imported external networks in OnApp.
