On my work, I needed to install ESXi on our Server HP Proliant DL360 G6 server. Going to configure the network, I needed to add adapters to vSwitch but something went wrong and I got the error says to me – “You do not have free adapters to add to vSwitch”:
After some searches, I came across VMware document “Configuring vSwitch or vNetwork Distributed Switch from the command line in ESXi/ESX (1008127)“
For work, we need to connect to the server via SSH and configure through the console. I needed the following commands:
esxcli network vswitch standard list – to view vswitch configuration
esxcli network ip interface list – to view vmkernel interfaces
esxcli network nic list – to view physical adapters
To add another uplink:
This command without any problems added an interface to my vSwitch:
Next, I went back to the NIC teaming settings via the Web GUI:
After this activities, I was able to add adapters to my vSwitch and continue work with my server.
