Hi, all!

Have some issue:
VMWare ESXi 5.5
on this hypervisor I install Netsight 6.3, Purview 6.3 and V2110
Can't add normally tap interface of Purview.

Have a network - management network for V2110 and network for Netsight.
Add this network as management for Purview.
have a network - data network for V2110 - connect to switch with AP3805.
Trying Purview topologies 1,2 and 3 but still can't see V2110. Add phisical interface which look in network but in Purview "ifconfig" I can't see this interface.
In V2110 - Netflow/MirrorN - Traffic Mirror L2 Port - have only None option.

May be I have to add only 1 interface to Purview. ( But then I'll wouldn't see Purview in Netsight.
Or what I'm doing wrong?

Help please!! question is quite urgent!!

Thank you!

Hi AlexandrP,
It sounds like the VM for Purview only has one adapter, and you would like to add a secodary interface for the tap, to be used betwen the v2110 (which also needs extra adapter)?


here is VMware solution to do that. Additionally, the inteferace for the tap port, must be made into Promiscuous mode as well.
