Support for VMXNET 2 and 3 inside Ubuntu on ESX and ESXi installs with Intel 10 Gigabit 82598 / 82598EB and 82599 Ethernet
I am deploying some test guest OS on my ESX platform and want to use the FULL 10GIG of bandwidth I can support on the NIC. I discovered that the client install ISO doesn't recognize the NIC but that I can configure it post-install!
Right click the guest virtual machine in vSphere Client, and slect GUEST menu and then Install/Upgrade VMware Tools, this will mount the iso to the /dev/cdrom next:
sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
tar zxf /media/cdrom/VM*
I accepted the defaults...
sudo ifconfig -a
should see eth0
sudo vim interfaces
add these lines:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
