How to Configure the VM Network Interfaces

Either two or three of the following VMs are available on the server as part of the factory-installed software configuration process:

If you installed the Oracle VM Manger, it boots and runs at the end of the configuration process. The other two VMs are not booted. Before booting the other VMs, use Oracle VM Manager to configure network interfaces.

  1. Open a browser and navigate to the OVM manager IP address.

    See Oracle VM Manager Configuration Worksheet for the IP address and login information.

  2. Log on to the OVM Manager.
  3. At the Oracle VM Manager screen, click the Virtual Machine main tab.

    The Virtual Machine screen appears.

  6. To configure the VM network interfaces, select the interface and click Edit.

  7. Configure the interface accordingly.
  8. For Oracle Solaris VM, add the bridge to the configuration file. Change the vif parameter in /OVS/running_pool/OVM_SOLARISnnnn/vm.cfg (where nnnn is the Oracle Solaris version, for example 10U8).

    For example, if the network interface you intend to use is attached to xenbr8, edit the line:

    vif = ['mac=00:16:3E:14:AB:89,type=netfront']

    Change it to:

    vif = ['mac=00:16:3E:14:AB:89,type=netfront,bridge=xenbr8']
