Efficient networking is crucial for a virtual datacenter. (I suppose it's crucial for any kind of datacenter, but I'm focusing here.) In Ops Center, you can keep your vDC networks running using network domains. Network domains manage public networks with defined resources as well as ad-hoc private networks.
To create a network domain through Ops Center, you need to identify at least one fabric to support it, then run the Create Network Domain wizard. This wizard lets you create new dynamic private networks for the new domain and associate existing networks with it.
Once you've created a network domain, you can associate it with a server pool by selecting the server pool and running the Associate Network Domain wizard. This wizard lets you pick a network domain, then pick a physical interface on each server in the server pool for the network domain to use. Once you've done this, the server pool can use public and private networks within the network domain.
The Creating and Managing Network Domains how-to provides more background information and walks you through both of these wizards.
