Creates a VNIC.
createvnic connector <-guid guid>|<-host hostname -port port>|<-node string -port port> [-mac mac][-vlan vlan_ID] -pkey p_key [-n][-h]
connector is the name of the connector (0A-ETH-1 to 0A-ETH-4, 0A-ETH, 1A-ETH-1 to 1A-ETH-4, and 1A-ETH).
guid is the global unique identifier.
hostname is the host name of the management controller or system name recognized by the BridgeX manager.
port is the port of the host.
string is the character string in the node description field.
mac is the machine address code.
Note - Only even numbers are supported for the most significant byte of the MAC address (unicast).
vlan_ID is the VLAN identifier.
p_key is the partition key (default).
This hardware command creates a VNIC for a specific connector. When a VNIC is created, it is automatically assigned an ID number. You can see this ID number with the showvnics command.
The createvnic command is available from the /SYS/Gateway_Mgmt and /SYS/Fabric_Mgmt Linux shell targets of the Oracle ILOM CLI interface.
The following table describes the options to the createvnic command and their purposes:
The following example shows how to create a VNIC with the default partition key using the createvnic command.
