Has anyone used a dual-port-NIC with Virtual Machine Manager

Recommended Posts

I have an onboard NIC (Dell Optiplex 3010 PC) and an Intel Pro-1000 dual-port PCI NIC, making a total of three available LAN interfaces.


In DSM 6.2.3's Netowk Control Panel all three NICs are visible, I can ping their manually assigned IPs and their connection status is determined OK when I plug and unplug their cables. All good so far.


However when I visit Virtual Machine Manager > Virtual Switch I'm only offered  the on-board NIC and ONE of the dual-port LAN interfaces.  I'd expected to have a choice of the on-board one and the two interfaces from the dual-port-card?   The mac addresses for both of the dual-port interfaces (together with the on-board port) are present in the grub.cfg and as I say, all interfaces functiom as expected in the DSM Control Panel - just not when I try to use all of them in Virtual Machine Manager. 

I'm using Jun's 1.0.3b loader and the DS3617xs firmware (DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 2)

Does anyone have any thoughts?
