    vmxnet 3 and e1000 apdapters

      Guys,

       

      Quick question.  We currently have en ESX 4.1 environment with 4 hosts.  Currently all VM's are configured with the e1000 NIC adapter.  According to vmware best practices you should use the vmxnet3 NICs.  We will adding some new hosts to our environment shortly and my qeustion is this.

       

      If I follow best practices and configure all future VM's with vmxnet3 will there be any compatibility issues with VM's configured with e1000 adapters?

       

      Thanks.
