Hot-plugging Interfaces on the VMware ESX Platform

On the VMware ESX platform, perform the following steps to hot-plug a network interface into a vRouter :
  1. Log in to vSphere Client.
  2. Add an Ethernet network adapter to your router and set the adapter type to VMXNET 3.

    Note: VMXNET 3 is the only supported network adapter type for hot-plugging on the VMware ESX platform.

The router hot-plugs the new interface.
