Hi

I've recently added a further 8GB of RAM and an HP NC360T dual port gigabit ethernet adapter to my virtual server box so that I can have it running more virtual machines. However, the additional cards do not appear as options in the network card drop-down list - all I have is:

Not connected
External Network (BASP Virtual Adapter)
External Network (Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet #2)
External Network (Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet)
Internal Network

The cards are listed in Server Properties>Physical Computer Properties and the "Virtual Machine Network Services" are enabled for each of the cards. I've tried unticking and reticking these but taht didn't help. I also restarted the whole box over night but the additional cards aren't showing up. Any ideas on how to get them listed?

Thanks

Okay, I'm an idiot, sorry. I hadn't actually created a new Virtual Network for the additional cards. Have now done this and it's working fine!

Obviously I had a temporary moment of Virtual Server amnesia.
