Adding Additional VNICs for Cisco Blades

jahanzaib amin

We recent added 2 new Blades Server B200m4 in our running environment. After initializing and power up (VMware Hypervisor 6.0)  when I check the VNICs availability for these 2 Blades, there are only 2 VNICs inside New Blades but for old Blades there are around 10 VNICs. 

I am aware that in Blades Server these are Virtual NICs and some where in UCS Manager we need to select additional VNICs.

Can some one provide complete steps to adding further VNICs for new Blades?

You would need to add additional vNIC to the service profile or service profile template (if updating). Once this is complete, ESXi will see more interfaces.

You can make this change from the Servers Tab > Select your Service Profile/Template > Add vNIC.

I am not able to add further VNICs on your given option. Can you send me some documents for adding more VNICs to Blades Server?

Kindly note these NICs will be shown as Physical VNIC inside by Blade Server when I will access them via Vsphere Client.
