Add a Public IP Address to a Zone

Overview

When adding a Zone to a Private Clouds deployment, the chosen number of IP addresses are added simultaneously. The number of IP addresses chosen directly impacts the number of virtual instances that can be created within that Zone. IP addresses are associated directly to a Zone and are not tied to any single host server. At any time, additional public IP addresses may also be added. Add public IPs to a Zone in order to communicate with external network resources. Follow the steps below to add public IP addresses to a Zone.
