Has anyone been able to switch a K2000 VM to use a 10gig adapter?
I know we don't have any root access, can't log in as a sudoer. I know the K2000 reports that it's got VMWare tools installed so the proper drivers should be installed. I tried configuring one of my RSA machines with a vmxnet2 adapter and it was no-go. If I could use lspci, etc. as a sudoer I think it'd be pretty easy to get the 10gig adapter running. I hope they eventually start thinking of the VM's as a software package instead of a hardware package and give us a little more access :grrrrr:. Any thoughts? I'd love to actually be able to utilize the network bandwidth I've got available.

I was able to port team to the VM to do a 2 GB throughput. I just present two network adapters for the same network in the hardware for the virtual machine, and then port team them in the switch. Try going at it like this from the network / VM side. I may be getting away with it because I'm using two 10/100/1000 pipes, and the K2K understands a 10/100/1000 NIC, but not a 10G NIC. You may be able to present ten 10/100/1000 NICs and consolidate them later with port teaming back at the switch.
