VI client doesn't let me add another virtual ethernet adapeter to a centos 5.2 guest vm on ESXi 3.5.

Is there a way to achieve this via some command like tricks?

No - you cannot hot add Ethernet cards on any version of VMware ESX or ESXi. There isn't any command line way around this on ESX\i 3.5 (or on V4).

it's coming in 4.whatever for W2K8R2 VMs btw ;) –  Chopper3 Mar 26 '10 at 22:12
    
Interesting - it's not something I'd have put very high on my list of desired features but clearly there is some demand. –  Helvick Mar 26 '10 at 23:08
