Change Virtual Network Interface Properties


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.

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 Edit.

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 helps make the system more stable by preventing crashes.
