Currently the system requires the Network to have an IP range assigned to it. On each new Virtual Server build, the system assigns an IP address from the configured range.
The new feature (check box or something similar on Settings -> Network), should allow the Admin/User to build a VS without assigning the IP address range. The IP would be assigned manually from within the VS (or even through a form from within OnAppCP). The hypervisors should be aware of such Networks and add rules to their local firewalls accordingly (for example, using an IP/CIDR passed on through the "Network->Assign IP" form or even 0.0.0.0/0).
This would make it a lot easier to migrate machines from other platforms without having to change the IP address.
