Provision a Subnet for Your Virtual Appliance

These steps assume you have set up a VA. If you have not yet done so, provision VAs before you continue. For more information, see the Virtual Appliance Setup Guide.

You should be provisioning at least one VA per site, but you can have multiple subnets per site if necessary.


  1. Navigate to Deployments > Configuration > Sites and Active Directory.
    By default, the VA will be assigned to the default site or to no site at all.
  1. To add a second site for a second VA:
    a. Click Settings.

b. Click Add New Site.

c. Add a Site Name and click Save.
Your new site is listed.

  1. Navigate to Deployments > Configuration > Internal Networks and click Add.
  2. Name your network and provide a valid subnet.
  3. Click Show Sites and choose your newly added site from the pull-down menu.
  1. Click Save.
    Note: If you are unable to save your changes, it may be because the Cisco Umbrella Internal Networks setup does not allow an invalid range to be configured. The basic principle is that the final octet of your IP range should match the mask for that range. More information about subnet masks, as well as tools, are easily available from many third-party websites.

You can assign an individual Internal Network policy to a single IP address or to an entire DHCP scope that's already been configured for your network.
