How do I add a second nic card to Virtual Server 2005 R2

I installed a second network card on a machine using Virtual Server 3005 R2.

When the server is rebooted, VS 2005 R2 does not see the additional network card.

How do I force this change?

It should see, second NIC upon reboot.

Are you able to see second NIC in machine configuration.

The second network card appears in Windows 2003 Server, and it has a valid IP address and I can ping it, etc.

Just Virtual Server does not see it

So, you have added second NIC to your host server and not the guest machine.


If you have added a second NIC on your host machine.(Host machine is what machine on which VS 2005 is installed)
Then you need to add this NIC to your guest machine as well.(Guest machine is the virtual machine inside VS).

To add your NIC in guest machine,

Goto Create new network in Admin page(Left side), and create a new network and select your new network card.


Then, goto Configure Machine and select your virtual machine--->goto network card and add it their.

I did that in Virtual Server, and the network card does not show up.

Thus my question here

Please check inside your virtual machines OS.

The new NIC would be listed in device manager, with exclamation sign on it.

Uninstall it and reboot the virtual server.

This should solve your problem.
