Creating Virtual Network Interface Controllers

A Virtual Network Interface Controller (VNIC) is 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 virtual Network Interface Controller (NIC), which is used by a virtual machine.

To create Virtual Network Interface Controllers:

  1. Log on to Oracle VM Manager.
  2. Select the Servers and VMs tab.
  3. In the left pane, right-click Server Pools, and then select Create VNICs.

    The MAC selector panel is displayed.

  4. Click Next to retrieve the next available MAC addresses.
  5. Select the number of addresses that you want to create, and click Create.


    Select the number of addresses that corresponds to the number of virtual machines you are deploying.

    The VNICs are created and listed in the Virtual NIC table.

  6. Click Close.
