Tips to install Linux Access Gateway (LAG) on VMware 4

Rate this Entry
Some days ago I had to install new LAG SP3 IR2, running on SLES 11, in a VMWare VCenter 4 and I had some problems to get virtual NIC work.

The problem was about new SLES 11 linux appliance doesn't recognized the VMXNET virtual NIC for any unknow reason. So, after research I figured out, reading some internet posts, the problem was the type of virtual NIC. After change from VMXNET to E1000 I could reinstall my both two appliances and get them finally work and done!

Maybe you're with the same problem. You should change the NIC from anything to E1000, reinstall the appliance, import them into you Access Manager Administration console and change the NIC again to more powerfull or better NIC than E1000.

In my environment I leave the E1000 NIC and I don't have plans to change until I've any problem about performance or ethernet errors. So, I hope this TIP can help you if you're having problems like I was.

See you in the next post...
