Hello,

I am installing ESXi6 on a machine that has multiple Network interface Cards. How do I choose which one will be the management IP address?

Thank you

From the direct console, select Configure Management Network and press Enter.

Select Network Adapters and press Enter.

Select a network adapter and press Enter.

Be Default ESXi uses the first network interface it finds, e.g. nic0 or vmnic0 as ESXi refers to it, this can be changed later, using the vSphere Client, Web Client or Management Console interface.

You may want to look at Teaming Policies, and physical network configuration  if you want to allocate more than a single interface.
