5. vCloud vApp Provisioning : 5.5 Workflow Overview : 5.5.5 Custom IP Handler
5.5.5 Custom IP Handler
When you deploy a single virtual machine with MANUAL IP Addressing Mode, the workflow allows you to specify the static IP address to use. It may often be desirable simply to use POOL or DHCP because those methods are safe to use both with virtual machine vApps that use single virtual machines and those that use multiple virtual machines. The sample workflow codes IP handling for user-specified IP address at this time, but you can replace or modify the Scriptable Task handling manual assignment to call a third-party script or IPAM plug-in to retrieve and assign a managed IP address. For scripting details, see the Set Custom IP scriptable task of the sample workflow.
