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 .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateDefaultVpcAsync.
