Celerra VSA

Just downloaded and installed teh latest VSA on vSphere 4 but now have an issue where the eth2 interface is missing ?

The VM has 3 network adapters - anyone got any thoughts?

Re: Celerra VSA

which version are you using ?

I think the Powerlink one still is 5.6.43 while virtualgeek already has 5.6.47 available

Re: Celerra VSA

I got the virtualgeek one 5.6.47.  I have everything up and running over the 2 eth ports - its just I'd like to get it configured the "correct" way i.e 1 for normal traffic, one for iscsi and one for control station.

Any help greatly appreciated

Re: Celerra VSA

I had that problem with Eth2 as well.  I tried everything, but I decided to try an extreme, and it worked:

1) Update VMware tools to the latest.  This is critical to allow it to rebuild the VMXNET3 drivers for this linux build.

2) Shutdown VSA VM, and edited the VM configuration and removed all NIC's, Applied Changes

3) Edit the VM Configurationa gain, go to the options tab, and change the OS to RHEL 5 32bit and applied changes

4) Added back 3 nics using the VMXNET3 driver and placed in appropriate VLANs (Per your requirement)

5) Booted server up  - VIOLA!  Eth2 was back, and now it was using the newer VMXNET3 driver.
