Is there a way to map my virtual HW virtual NIC in order?
VM HW map
DSM LAN #
ESXi 7.0U3 / RedPill DS3622xs / DSM 7.1-42661 Update 1
JSON included my VMX MAC's
In TinyCore vNIC# + eth# & mac# matches order
root@box:/home/tc# dmesg | grep eth
[ 1.279973] vmxnet3 0000:04:00.0 eth0: NIC Link is Up 10000 Mbps
[ 1.281575] vmxnet3 0000:05:00.0 eth1: NIC Link is Down
[ 1.283729] vmxnet3 0000:06:00.0 eth2: NIC Link is Down
[ 1.284765] vmxnet3 0000:07:00.0 eth3: NIC Link is Down
In DSM it looks like that
admin01@xpenologydsm7:/$ dmesg | grep eth
[ 50.596284] vmxnet3 0000:04:00.0 eth0: NIC Link is Up 10000 Mbps
[ 50.597589] vmxnet3 0000:05:00.0 eth1: NIC Link is Down
[ 50.599181] vmxnet3 0000:06:00.0 eth2: NIC Link is Down
[ 50.600224] vmxnet3 0000:07:00.0 eth3: NIC Link is Down
[ 55.824233] vmxnet3 0000:06:00.0 eth7: renamed from eth2 <--- Wierd?
What's happening here and would there be a way to force this in Redpill?
When using 3vNIC's all is good, haven't tried adding a 5th nic yet.
Added extra parameters to my VMX file to play with PCI Bus, SLots, POrt to see if that changed anything, still DSM acts funky
