    NIC Agents Used in the NIC Configuration Scenarios

    When you configure a NIC configuration scenario, you use the basic configuration for each NIC agent in the scenario, but modify properties such as directory properties to make the agent configuration compatible with your SRC configuration. The NIC configuration scenario that you use determines which agents appear in your configuration.

    Table 1 lists all agents that are available in the various configuration scenarios.
