XenCenter

Virtual Networking Configuration

Note:

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.

You can configure up to 4 virtual network interfaces from the Networking page of the New VM wizard. To configure more than 4, go to the VM’s Networking tab after it has been created and add them from there.

By default, an automatically created random MAC address is used for all virtual network interfaces. To enter a different MAC address, click Properties. Enter a new address in the Virtual Interface Properties dialog box, using hexadecimal characters in the form aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff.

  • To add a new virtual network interface, click Add.
  • To remove a virtual network interface, select it in the list and then click Delete.
  • To change the virtual disk’s physical network, MAC address or quality-of-service (QoS) priority, select it and then click Properties. For more information, see Change virtual network interface properties.

You can use the Networking tab to change the VM’s virtual networking configuration later, if necessary. For more information, see Configuring VM networking.
