When first deploying a VLM, each VLM has two interfaces, eth0 and eth1. To add more interfaces on a VLM, extra Network Interface Cards (NICs) need to be added to your VLM machine. The steps to add a NIC depends on which platform you are using, for example VMware or Hyper-V.
The general process of adding extra NICs is as follows:
- Power down the VLM.
- Edit the configuration of your VLM machine.
- Add the number of NICs you want and assign static MAC addresses to the NICs.
- Power on the machine.
When the VLM machine powers up, the VLM will have extra interfaces.
