Change Virtual Network Interface Properties

To change properties of a virtual network interface, open the Virtual Interface Properties dialog box by doing one of the following:

  • Click the VM’s Networking tab, then select the virtual network interface and click Properties.
  • On the Network page of the New VM wizard, click Properties.

You can change the network location and MAC address of a virtual network interface, and you might also be able to set its I/O priority.

Property Description
Network The network location of the virtual network interface.
MAC address The MAC address of the virtual network interface. You can autogenerate this value or enter it manually in the form XY:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX where X is any hexadecimal digit, and Y is 2, 6, A or E.
Enable QoS limit Select this option and enter a value in kilobytes per second (kB/s) to set an optional I/O priority Quality of Service (QoS) setting for maximum network transfer rate. When memory resources are low, using I/O throttling in this way slows the memory processing and help make the system more stable by preventing crashes.
