DSM7 ESXi multiple vNICs when using 4 vNICs or more show out of order

Hi, 

 

Is there a way to map my virtual HW virtual NIC in order?

 

VM HW map JSON mac's DSM LAN #
vNIC #1 mac1 LAN 1
vNIC #2 mac2 LAN 2
vNIC #3 mac3 LAN 8
vNIC #4 mac4 LAN 4

 

MySetup:

ESXi 7.0U3 / RedPill DS3622xs / DSM 7.1-42661 Update 1

JSON included my VMX MAC's

    "mac1": "005056AA001",
    "mac2": "005056AA002",
    "mac3": "005056AA003",
    "mac4": "005056AA004",

 

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?

 

PS:

  1. When using 3vNIC's all is good, haven't tried adding a 5th nic yet.
  2. Added extra parameters to my VMX file to play with PCI Bus, SLots, POrt to see if that changed anything, still DSM acts funky :)

 

.vmx settings for vNICs
ethernet0.pciSlotNumber=1184

ethernet1.pciSlotNumber=2208

ethernet2.pciSlotNumber=3232

ethernet3.pciSlotNumber=4256
