I am using VM Infrastructure. The physical server has 2 Networks Card! I would like to change an IP for one network card but I don't know how to do...
Thanks and sorry for my poor English.
why you want to change IP address on your nic?
esx have service console IP address (the one you point with VI client) that is attached to some of your physical nic, and that is all you need. VM will have its own IP address and it is configurable in your guest OS.
do you want to add another Service console? you can do it through VI client.
Because I have some VM on the 192.168.0.0 subnet and I would like to put others VM on an other subnet (18.104.22.168).
So I have 2 networks cards :
- The first wille be use for my Service console and some VM for the subnet 192.168.0.0
- The second for the other subnet (22.214.171.124).
you just neet to plug your network cable from second nic (subnet 126.96.36.199) into network 188.8.131.52. and thats it (if you want that your virtual machines have connection with other physical machines on your network)
you do not have to do enything with your esx server like change ip address on nic. you just have to enable that nic physicaly see that network. and to configure ip address in your VM.
But in Network Adapters I see my two networks cards :
And both, in observed IP ranges has "192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255"
I configure my VM with IP 184.108.40.206 but I can't ping other servers!
Sorry, but it's very hard to me to explain that in English....I think that I have to change the observed IP ranges for vmic1...
Thanks you very much!
observerd IP range 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255 means that nic0 and nic1 are physicaly connected to network 192..... swintch in which these nics are connected see only 192 network.
you have to connect nic1 in switch on 193 network and then you will see in observerd ip range 193..... you have to provide to nic1 physical visibility with 193 network.
