How to configure fault tolerance network interface?

Hello,

This is my first query in this forum. I'm looking for the way to configure a fault tolerance network interface for a virtual machine, I need a pair of fault tolerance network interface .

I have found drivers for physical intefaces with this feature but I don't know if This would be a valid solution for de virtual machine.

Another choice is to configure vnet0 as automatic mode but I need another virtual switch (vnet1, for example) with this configuration and It isn't possible.

Thank you for your answers.

Welcome to the Forums -  You really do not configure network fault tolerance at the virtual NIC level but you do it at the virtual switch by configuring the virtual switch with 2 or more physical adapters - that way of you do lose a physical the traffic can fail over to the second NIC
