Refer to Downloading the SBC SWe Lite Package prior to performing this procedure.


The SBC SWe Lite supports one Network Management interface and up to four Network Media interfaces. The minimal networking configuration (one management and one media interface) requires two bridge interfaces configured on Hyper Visor host. To support maximum 1+4 configuration, Hyper Visor host must have five bridge interfaces configured prior to the Virtual Machine (VM) installation.

Figure : Adding Network Interfaces


The SBC SWe Lite Virtual Machine requires five Virtual Network Interfaces configured, regardless of the actual number of Networks used by the guest VM.


 The first Virtual NIC must use a dedicated bridge (Network source). The Network source can then be used to configure the four remaining Virtual NICs.

Sonus recommends that all customers review and, if necessary, optimize their Network Interface configurations before proceeding. Failure to do so could lead to interface mapping issues. See Mapping Network Interfaces and then return to this section.

Finalize Installation

  1. From the Virtual Machine dialog, click Begin installation.
