Configuring VM Networking


XenCenter 2023.x.x is currently in preview and is not supported for production use. Note that any future references to production support apply only when XenCenter 2023.x.x and XenServer 8 go from preview status to general availability.

You can use XenCenter 2023.x.x to manage your XenServer 8 and Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 non-production environments. However, to manage your Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 production environment, use XenCenter 8.2.7. For more information, see the XenCenter 8.2.7 documentation.

You can install XenCenter 8.2.7 and XenCenter 2023.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter 2023.x.x does not overwrite your XenCenter 8.2.7 installation.

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 helps 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.
