We will need to set up and configure logical networks that will be connected to the physical network ports on OVM Servers. This is a critical piece of setup, and we suggest you make sure your physical network components (subnets, VLANs) are correctly set up. Enterprise Manager makes this step as painless as possible, but if the underlying physical interfaces are misconfigured, there is a chance that you will encounter difficulty in debugging issues. While setting up OVM Networks, we will need to do the following:
Generate MAC addresses
Create and configure VLAN groups
Create logical networks
It is important to understand how Oracle VM Manager handles network traffic. VM Manager uses VNICs. A Virtual Network Interface Card (VNIC) is a pseudo network interface technology sitting on top of the physical network adaptor; in most cases a NIC. Each physical network interface (NIC) usually has multiple VNICs, and for a system such as Oracle VM Manager, a VNIC appears...
