To add a logical network to a service template
In the Service Template Designer, on the Home tab, in the Service Template Components group, click Add Logical Network. An element representing the logical network is added to the canvas.
Select the logical network element on the canvas, and then in the properties pane at the bottom of the Service Template Designer window, select the appropriate logical network from the Network list.
To connect the logical network to the network adapter of a tier, on the Home tab, in the Tools group, click Connector. Then on the canvas, drag from the logical network element to the network adapter element of the tier. A connecting line will appear to join the two elements.
