The vCenter networking functionality available at Control Panel > Admin > Settings > Networks enables you to manage networks and work with IP nets. A network can contain several IP nets which include IP ranges with a default gateway. The network details page shows the list of IP nets in a network with their IP ranges, which include the IPs assigned to virtual servers and/or users, as well as the networks of the Shared type in your cloud with their label, identifier, and VLAN.
OnApp currently offers two types of IP nets: IP Pool and Manual IP. IP Pool nets are the regular type of IP net in OnApp, they contain IPs assigned to users/VSs and are available during server creation. When a VS is imported into OnApp and its IP is within one of the IP ranges from the vCenter networks, the IP is added to the IP net of the corresponding network.
If the IP of a vCenter VS that is being imported is not a part of an IP range in any of the vCenter networks, a special type of an IP net is created, Manual, and the IP of such a VS is added to it. Manual IP nets contain a single IP range which includes the whole space of IPv4 IP addresses. IPs from an Manual IP net are not available in the VS creation wizard. Manual IP nets can be viewed or deleted. A network can contain only one Manual IP net.
For information on IP Pool nets refer to Network Settings.
