What is the NMID of a lan card?

It is possible to change the NMID of a card? I think that no, but how the system assigns the NMID to a card? it has no relation with the card instance.
Thanks in advance

Hi,

Network Management ID is reported by programs like 'lanscan' and is used to address the right card with 'lanadmin'.

It's assigned sequentially by the system.

Hi,

Do an online check of lanscan documentations. (man lanscan or lanadmin)
NMID is the Network Management ID(Identification number assigned to the card through lanadmin or when configuring a network card through /etc/rc.config.d/netconf file.
