is there any way to change the default NIC type of new created NICs of vCD VMs?
If i add an extra nic to a Win2K12 vm it will be E1000e instead of our prefeerd vmxnet3.
When you create a new virtual machine from an ISO file, the default NIC is created, this is because you have not yet installed the VMware tools and the VMXNET3 is not seen. If you want to create virtual machines with the VMXNET3 NIC you have to create a template already with the updates and the VMware Tools installed.
Then before the conversion to Template you change the type of NIC in VMXNET3.
alternatively you can use a script in PowerCLI and you can specify the type VMXNET3
new-networkadapter -vm <vmname> -NetworkName "<Port group name>" -Type "VMXNET3" -startconnected
