ONTAP select network hardware

Hi team,

 

during deployment of an ONTAP Select 9.13.1 customer tells me his only choice is an E1000 network hw instead of vmxnet3 type. Strange because the manual says that since 9.6 vmxnet3 is the default.

 

Anyone any tips on howto set networkcard to vmxnet3? It's running on Vsphere 7

 

Thanks in advance!

What does that mean?

Their VMware admins won't let him use vmxnet3?

vSphere doesn't have the vmxnet3 option?

Something else?

Shutdown the VM(s) and edit the VM's NIC setting as per vSphere 7 documentation, start the VM(s).

The VMware PowerCLI cmdlet is Set-NetworkAdapter.

Hi,

 

is the MTU size >1500? If not, that could explain why it use the old network adapter instead of the new one.

And as far as I know this, via ontap select deploy you cannot choose which adapter type you want to use. So where can the customer choose this?

 

Best regards

Kai
