AWS SDK Version 3 for .NET
API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Creates a default VPC with a size /16 IPv4 CIDR block and a default subnet in each Availability Zone. For more information about the components of a default VPC, see Default VPC and Default Subnets in the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide. You cannot specify the components of the default VPC yourself.

You can create a default VPC if you deleted your previous default VPC. You cannot have more than one default VPC per region.

If your account supports EC2-Classic, you cannot use this action to create a default VPC in a region that supports EC2-Classic. If you want a default VPC in a region that supports EC2-Classic, see "I really want a default VPC for my existing EC2 account. Is that possible?" in the Default VPCs FAQ.


For PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateDefaultVpcAsync.
