Then add all Compute Nodes to this network using the following command.

PCA> add network-to-tenant-group MyPublicNetwork Rack1_ServerPool
Validating servers in the tenant group... This may take some time.
The job for sync all nodes in tenant group with the new network MyPublicNetwork has been submitted.
Please look into "/var/log/ovca.log" and "/var/log/ovca-sync.log" to monitor the progress.
