    Add 2nd NIC as independent port on vSwitch on ESXi 6.7

    FrancisAugusto Novice



      I have a motherboard - Supermicro - with lots of NIC's. Currently, I have one of my VM's connected to a vSwitch, which has a physical adapter assigned to it.


      However, I want to connect a computer to this machine via one of its NIC's and I want it to join this vSwitch. I know it is possible to add another nic as an uplink. But is it possible to add another nic so that other machines could be part of the same vSwitch?


      In short, I want to add another nic as just another port on this vSwitch so other machines can be part of it.


      Any tips on how to do it?
