How to configure NIC on VMWare ESXI server
Posted on 2012-08-28
We currently have a VMware ESXI 4.1 server hosting 3 virtual machines. It has two on-board NICs but only one is enabled on the server. vmnic0 is fully operational and vmnic1 is setup as a standby adapter but is currently down. I am new to the configuration, so my guess is that the NIC is disabled on the server and needs enabled. I tried reaching the server via SSH but it looks like the installers did not enable it. I need to enable vmnic1 as well as SSH. How do I go about that?
