OPENFILER and VMXNET3

Installed VMware tools using my previous article at http://enterpriseadmins.org/blog/?p=133

Once the tools were install I shutdown the virtual machine and changed the Guest OS from ‘Other Linux (64-bit)’ to ‘Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (64-bit)’. Once I had switched to a supported OS, I was able to add a VMXNET3 adapter.

After powering the virtual openfiler box back on I accessed the ‘system’ tab of the web GUI and found the eth1 interface disabled. I enabled the eth1 interface from the web GUI and configured it for DHCP.

I’ve used IOMETER to push about 700GB worth of IO to an NFS share on the OPENFILER VM – all across the VMXNET3 adapter so I’m sure its working 🙂
