Edit Port

To edit an Ethernet port:

  1. Select the Servers and VMs tab.

  2. In the navigation pane, select the Oracle VM Server on which the Ethernet port is to be edited. If the Oracle VM Server is already part of a server pool, it is listed under Server Pools. Otherwise, find and select the Oracle VM Server in the Unassigned Servers folder.

  3. In the management pane, set the Perspective to Ethernet Ports and select the Ethernet port to edit. In the toolbar above, click Edit Selected Port Edit Selected Port icon . The Edit Port dialog box is displayed.

  4. You can set or change the IP addressing, the mask, the MTU or the description. The Addressing field provides a drop-down selector that allows you to choose either None, Static or Dynamic to specify how IP Addressing should be configured on this interface or port. If you select Static here, the IP Address and Mask fields become available to edit, otherwise they remain uneditable. Setting the Addressing field to None deletes any previous IP addressing configured for the port.


    The IP addressing must either be set to Dynamic or Static (and the IP addressing information completed) if you intend to use the network port for an Oracle VM network channel, such as for "Server Management", "Live Migrate","Cluster Heartbeat" or "Storage".

  5. Click OK to save and apply your changes.
