Select the number of NICs for the virtual machine on the Configure Networks page.

Exercise caution when you configure a virtual machine to connect to multiple networks. Because virtual machines share their physical network hardware with the host, the accidental or malicious bridging of two networks by a virtual machine can occur. Spanning Tree protocol cannot protect against these occurrences.


Select the number of network interface cards (NICs) you want to create on the virtual machine.


For each NIC, select a network, adapter type, and whether you want the NIC to connect when the virtual machine is powered on.
