Adding an Enhanced High-Speed NIC
This section describes how to add an enhanced high-speed NIC to a BMS.
The BMS must be in Running state.
A BMS has a maximum of two enhanced high-speed NICs and depends on the total bandwidth of the extension NICs. For example, if the total bandwidth allowed for the extension NICs is 2 x 10GE and the bandwidth of the first enhanced high-speed NIC is 2 x 10GE, you cannot add another enhanced high-speed NIC.
You can view the total bandwidth of extension NICs in the Extended Configuration column in Flavor.
- If a flavor's Extended Configuration contains 2*10GE (for example, the Extended Configuration of flavor physical.h2.large is 1*100G IB + 2*10GE), BMSs of this flavor has only one NIC without extension NIC, and the total bandwidth of extension NICs is 0.
- If a flavor's Extended Configuration contains 2 x 2*10GE (for example, the Extended Configuration of flavor physical.s3.large is 2 x 2*10GE), BMSs of this flavor has two NICs, of which one is an extension NIC, and the total bandwidth of extension NICs is 2*10GE.
- Log in to the management console.
- Under Computing, click Bare Metal Server.
The BMS console is displayed.
- Click the name of the target BMS.
- Click the NICs tab. Then, click Add NIC.
- Set the NIC type to enhanced high-speed NIC and select the bandwidth.
- Click OK.
The BMS cannot identify the newly added enhanced high-speed NIC. You must manually activate the NIC by following the instructions in sections Configuring an Enhanced High-Speed NIC (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12) to Configuring an Enhanced High-Speed NIC (Windows Server).
