Adjusting the NICs available to the Virtual Machine

After installing the virtual machine, you will need to enable the NICs that are available to the Exinda Virtual Appliance. The basic virtual machine configuration does not include the configuration necessary to link the virtual devices to the physical hardware on the host machine. You make adjustments to the number of CPUs in the Hyper-V Manager.

  1. Open the Hyper-V Manager.
  2. In the left pane, right-click on the virtual machine you need to edit and select Settings. The Settings dialog box for the virtual machine opens.
  3. In the left pane, under Hardware, select the network adapter to update. The network adapter settings open in the right pane.
  4. In the Virtual switch drop-down list, select the network to which to map the NIC.


In this pane you can also enable Bandwidth Management. Consult the Hyper-V documentation for more information on these settings.

  1. Click OK. The NIC configuration is immediately modified for when the virtual machine is started.


These instructions also apply to changing the configuration after the virtual appliance has entered service.
