Add a Virtual Network Interface

You can add up to seven Virtual Network Interfaces (VNIs) for a VM. For more information about the maximum number of VNIs supported for a VM, see the XenServer Configuration Limits.

  1. Open the Add Virtual Interface dialog box by doing one of the following:
    • Select the VM in the Resources pane. Go to the Networking tab. Click Add Interface.
    • On the Network page of the New VM wizard, click Add.
  2. Select a network location from the Network list.
  3. Specify the MAC address.
    • To use a generated MAC address, select Auto-generate a MAC address.
    • To explicitly enter a MAC address, select Use this MAC address. Enter an address in the form XY:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX where X is any hexadecimal digit, and Y is one of 2, 6, A or E.
  4. To set an optional I/O priority Quality of Service (QoS) setting for maximum network transfer rate, select the check box and enter a value in kilobytes per second (kB/s).
