I want to add a second NIC to my RHEL7 server but I am not sure How to do it , what is the easiest way????

I have added my 2nd NIC in VMWARE

If I do a "nmcli dev status" I can see it as eth1 NMCLI dev status
but in nmtui I see only eth0 that I can modify

can I add the connection here ? somehow ????????

Very confused!!!!!

Does the <Add> tab not let you add eth1?
The first screen shows that the system sees the new card, now you have to add it to the config files.

Pictures are NOT from RHEL7 on vmware!!!

Please post # uname -r
To confirm you OS version
What is the vmware HOST version and build number?

Also what vmware tools you have?
And what type of network adapter you added?

btw best practice is to NOT use networkmanager on a SERVER with STATIC IP
What is the purpose of this machine with 2 interfaces?
A router ? Does not make much sense in a virtual machine
Extra IP? That can work on a single adapter
