5.1. Generating VNICs
This figure shows the visual indicator that shows where you are in the tutorial.

The VNIC Manager creates Virtual Network Interface Cards (VNICs), which can be used by virtual machines as network cards. You create virtual network interfaces by defining a range of MAC addresses to use for each VNIC. Each MAC address corresponds with a single VNIC, which is used by a virtual machine. Before you can create a virtual machine which has the ability to connect to the network, you should generate a set of VNICs with the Vnic Manager. You only need to perform this step when you run out of VNICs, not each time you want to create a virtual machine.
