The HostVirtualNic data object describes a virtual network adapter
that connects to a virtual switch. A host virtual NIC differs from a physical NIC:
- A host virtual NIC is a virtual device that is connected to a virtual switch.
- A physical NIC (pnic) corresponds to a physical
device that is connected to the physical network.
A host virtual NIC provides access to the external network through a virtual switch
that is bridged through a Physical NIC to a physical network.
Port(port) on the port group that the virtual
NIC is using when it is enabled. If the Virtual NIC is connected to
DistributedVirtualSwitch or opaque network, this property is unset.
If the Virtual NIC is connecting to a vSwitch, this property is the name of
portgroup connected. If the Virtual NIC is connecting to a
DistributedVirtualSwitch or opaque network, this property is an empty string.
