A LAN segment is a private network that is shared by other virtual machines. A LAN segment can be useful for multitier testing, network performance analysis, and situations where virtual machine isolation are important.
Create a LAN Segment for a Virtual Machine You create a LAN segment by configuring virtual machine network settings. When you convert a team that was created in an earlier version of Workstation Pro, the LAN segment configuration is retained for each virtual machine. You do not need to recreate the LAN segment.
Configure a Virtual Machine to Use a LAN Segment You can configure an existing virtual machine to use a LAN segment, and you can change the LAN segment that a virtual machine is currently using.
Delete a LAN Segment Deleting a LAN segment disconnects all virtual network adapters that are configured for that LAN segment. When you delete a LAN segment, you must manually configure its disconnected virtual network adapter to reconnect the virtual machine to a network.
