@Alex_Samad ,

The first interface added to the VM will always be the management interface, and then they continue to form the actual ehternet interfaces you'll see specified in the configuration. The reason they seperate it out is the same reason that they seperate out the management port on the actual hardware. Even if your firewall is in a passive state and the ethernet interfaces are 'down', the management interface is still up allowing you to interact with the passive device.
