Installation Guide for VMware ESXi
The server has four network ports, NET0, NET1, NET2, and NET3. When any of these ports are connected to the network, VMware ESXi assigns a MAC address to the port. The following procedure describes how to use the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI) to determine the MAC address assigned by VMware ESXi.
-> show /System/Networking/Ethernet_NICs/Ethernet_NIC_n
Where n is 0, 1, 2, or 3
For example, if server network port NET0 is connected, then the above CLI command produces the following output, where the mac_addresses field lists the MAC address.
-> show /System/Networking/Ethernet_NICs/Ethernet_NIC_0 /System/Networking/Ethernet_NICs/Ethernet_NIC_0 Targets: Properties: health = OK health_details = - location = NET0 (Ethernet NIC 0) manufacturer = INTEL part_number = X540 serial_number = Not Available mac_addresses = 00:21:28:3D:B7:96 Commands: cd show ->
Note - If you are unsure of which network adapter to select, contact your network administrator.
