You could use a different subnet mask to combine several standard class C (255.255.255.0) subnets into one larger network

You could configure scopes on your dhcp server for different subnets and then create a master VM or template for each scope.

but can one VC cross the different ip segments to manage the VM,and can View connection server deploy VM with View composer cross different ip segment?

Hiya,

I would certainly be pretty amazed if VMware had developed their products so that they only worked with class C subnets.

Will be a few more days till I've done it here myself - but again it should work fine.

The thing that determines the size of the network is really just the subnet mask - nothing else.

How you set up your dhcp would rather depend what dhcp server on what OS you are using.

But the basics will be the same on any - set up a network scope with the appropriate subnet mask, enter the gateway, and then a range of IP addresses to use (and optionally any exclusions)

Obviously your network administrators will also need to set up the VLAN or network definition on your physical (cisco?) switches etc, with the correct mask and whatever gateway they wish to use - but they certainly ought to be familiar with that side of things?
