Usage Guidelines

The management subnet should be changed before deploying any VMs. You must first delete the subnet and then add the new subnet.

The chosen subnet should have at least four IP addresses for network, broadcast, gateway and VM. If the monitoring IP is passed in the deployment payload, it should be within the IP addresses available in the address pool. Otherwise, the Cisco Enterprise NFVIS assigns the next available IP from the address pool.
