linux hyper-v multiprocessor RRS feed

  • Question

  • I run SLES 11 as a guest VM in hyper-v and want to add a second processor. Well it seems that since i started with a legacy NIC and haven't moved to the synthetic device i can't get network access when i get my VM started.  So i went in and added a synthetic NIC and rebooted.  It then let me add a second processor and all was well.  Since this machine sits in my DMZ and i don't use dhcp there i need to the IP to the synthetic card.  Well it won't let me.  Every time i either enter via yast or even directly to the ifcfg-seth0 file it removes it on reboot.  I know this is a linux box but this only happens in hyper-v.  Is there anything any one here can help figure out?  Thanks.

  • the problem was first the legacy NIC and my vm needed SLES SP1 installed.
