By default, PAM servers are configured to use E1000e Network adapter on Vmware server. If there is a need to use VMXNET 3 network adapter, for example, to standardize and for better network performance, is it possible to change the configuration in Vmware server for PAM to use VMXNET 3?


PAM 3.x


VMXNET 3 network adapter should work fine with PAM as we have seen a few other sites using it. The possible issue is if MAC is changed. There is a command to change from E1000 to VMXNET3 without changing MACs: Get-VM "vmname" | get-networkAdapter | Where { $_.Type -eq "E1000"} | set-NetworkAdapter -Type "vmxnet3" -NetworkName "Network Adapter 1" The details about this command can be seen here:
