Configuring VM Networking

Each virtual machine (VM) can have one or more virtual network interfaces that act as virtual NICs.

A virtual network interface has the following properties:

Property Description
Network The (physical) network location of the virtual network interface.
MAC address The MAC address of the virtual network interface.
QoS limit 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.

All the virtual network interfaces for a VM are listed on the VM’s Networking tab. Here, you can add new virtual network interfaces. You can also edit, activate, deactivate, and remove existing virtual network interfaces.
