Nexus 9000v interface mapping Vmware

Hi,
I have problem with interface mapping on Nexus9000v. First interface for VM is management as expected. But second NIC on VM (E1000 type) is mapped to E1/3, second to E1/11 and so on. According to documentation interface should be mapped in sequence E1/1, E1/2 etc.
I use standalon ESXi 6.5.0 and create VM mannually importing virtual disk into VM.
Maybe I should edit ethernet2.pciSlotNumber in advaced VM options? Not value is "-1".
Anyone?

Greetings.

That is a function of the way VMware maps the guestvm nics to the esxi host VMnics.

The Nexus 9000 eth links are just the other physical end of the VMNIC connections, that VMware has choosen to pin the guestVM nic to VMNIC.

 

A few links discussing that:

You may want to reach out to VMware for specific Vmware questions.

 

Thanks,
