    ESX server as a VM: adding a second vnic, how to?

    humanxbox Novice

       

      Hi,

       

       

      I have virtualized ESX server 3.0.1 with Vmware Workstation 6.0.0 build 45731. I am trying to add a second nic in the vmx file to that esx server can use extra nic for vmotion.. See the actual contents of the vmx file below. I tried with ethernet1 etc.. but no luck. Any idea ? Also where can i find the thread about virtualizing ESX server in this communitie ??? I have tried to search for this thread but no luck. To virtualize my esx server (for testing) i have the white paper of Xtravirt (Paul Davey) Please help---
