I am running the 8.1.1 cluster mode simulator in vSphere. When I click edit settings and look at the number of Network adapters in the vsim, it shows 4 of them. I have tried adding additional network adapters, but get the following error message in the picture below. I have tried shutting down the simulator and adding it and tried several things within the vSphere server networking to be able to add additional network adapters and cannot make it work.
I know that it is possible to additional NICs as I just sat through the cluster mode class and there were six NICs in the labs for the class. So, just like adding disks to the simulator I am assuming that this is something that needs to be done within the simulator. Can anybody tell me how to add additional NICs to the simulator as I really need them for setting up a demo of load sharing mirrors. Plus with cluster mode, it would just be really helpful to be able to add NIC ports in the simulators.
I can shut the VM down and while it is down it will allow me to add additional adapters. However, when I try to power it up I get the screen documented above and it won't allow me to power on the VM until I remove the additional adapters.
I try this but no card was added and an error occured at the vm startup with the line (pciBridge0.present = "TRUE")... i'm running simulator on ESXi 4.1 with vm version 8 not on windows player or server..
I viewed the video about adding extra ( 2 here) network adapters. Everything looks good to me until when I need to change the subnet for new added adapters. Since I am using Vmware Play for Window 32 or 64bit, I don't have Virtual Network Editor as the video demostrated.
So, my quesiton, in my case, how do I change the subnet or configure IP address for new added network adapters.
in the end of adding extra network adapters, there is the need to use VM Editor to change subnet, based on the tutorial video. Since I don't have the editor, how do I change the subnet? or do you have to do that?
