I'm running a VMware Server 2.x with a number of guests. I now need to bridge in another network interface so that it will be available for a new guest machine.
The interface is visible and working on the host:
root@vmhost:/# ifconfig vlan72 vlan72 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 12:34:56:78:9A:BC UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1496 Metric:1
This is a trivial task using the configuration script vmware-config.pl. However that would require a full shutdown of the VMware Server software. So the big question is, can this be done without having to disrupt all the guests?
I've noticed that there is a "refresh network list" button in the web interface, which kinda implies that some changes to the network configurations must be possible while VMware Server is running.
