I am switching out my old PCI device for another on a VM within VMWare

I am running Linux 6.4 and VMWare 6.4

So I did the following in Linux (Before changing removing the device from VMWare)

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

mv ifcfg-eth3 OLD-ifcfg-eth3

Open in new window


ifdown eth3  (at this point the Linux says it cant find the adapter, probably because the ifcfg-eth3 has been renamed), so I perform the following

init 0

Open in new window


Linux goes down and I can no longer PUTTY in

However, the VM is still active (GREEN)

It looks like the VM cant go down because its trying to resolve th ePCI device, not sure

Any ideas on what is happening

Are you trying to switch between the type of virtual ethernet card (VMXNET2/3, E1000)?

Try comment out the containing the lines with the devices in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-presistent-net.rules and reboot the box. It should look similar to the following -

SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="08:00:27:aa:af:eb", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

Open in new window
