Having an issue adding more than 3 network interfaces to a VLM in VMWare. 





Having an issue adding more than 3 network interfaces to a VLM in VMWare.  When the fourth NIC is added, the management interface stops responding.


Product: LoadMaster

Version: Any

Platform: VMWare

Application: Any

Question/Problem Description:

When a fourth NIC is added in VMWare, access to the LoadMaster breaks.

Steps to Reproduce:  
Error Message:  
Defect Number:  
Enhancement Number:  
Cause: This is a VMware issue and nothing to do with the KEMP LoadMaster.
  • When adding 4 or more VMXNET3 Network Interface Controllers (NICs) to a Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) in VMware, the order of the interfaces on the Web User Interface (WUI) does not correspond with the order of the interfaces in machine setting, for example:
    • NIC 1: eth2
    • NIC 2: eth1
    • NIC 3: eth3
    • NIC 4: eth0
  • This order has been observed in all cases. It does not matter if the NICs are added before licensing or if they are added later.
  • Eth0 always corresponds to NIC4.
  • This behavior does not affect e1000 NICs.
