Network: Change VM adapter type after upgrade
Network: Improve network performance after an upgrade
|Problem Summary||Finesse 10.0(1) supports a different VM adapter type than Finesse 9.1(1). After you upgrade to Finesse 10.0(1), you must change the VM adapter type.|
|Possible Cause||The Finesse OVA template for Release 10.0(1) contains different LRO and network adapter settings than the OVA template for Release 9.1(1). The Release 10.0(1) OVA template takes advantage of a newer VM network adapter and network performance benefits of using the LRO capability of ESXi. If you upgrade from Release 9.1(1) to 10.0(1), you must change your VM adapter type.|
Enable Large Receive Offload (LRO) on the ESXi server that hosts the Finesse VMs:
Convert the VM network adapter from Flexible to E1000 for both the primary and secondary Finesse nodes:
Note: VSphere Client does not support changing the VM network adapter type. You must use VMware's VSphere PowerCLI commands to perform this task.
