Creates a VNIC.
createvnic connector|lagname <-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 and 1A-ETH-1 to 1A-ETH-4).
lagname is the identifier of the LAG
guid is the global unique identifier of the target port on the host associated with the VNIC.
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 MAC address.
Note - Only even numbers are supported for the most significant byte of the MAC address (unicast).
vlan_ID is the VLAN identifier (NO, 0, or 2 - 4094).
Note - Do not use VLAN identifiers 1 or 4095.
p_key is the partition key (1 – 7fff or 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.
This table describes the options to the createvnic command and their purposes.
This example shows how to create a VNIC with the default partition key using the createvnic command.
