Modify network connection for multiple server profiles

Hello,

 

I am using blades to run vSphere. Each of my blade servers have a profile with the same configuration for Flex10.

 

1. mngt

2. mngt

3. vMotion

4. vMotion

5. guest VLAN trunks

6. guest VLAN trunks

7. iSCSI

8. iSCSI

 

Is there a way to add a VLAN to NIC 5&6 on several profiles quickly? I am adding VLAN very often and this operation takes time and is error prone in the GUI.

 

The best solution would be to have a VLAN group that I could apply to some NIC and just being able to add a VLAN to the group so it applies to everything. I don't think this feature exists so I guess there is a quick way to do it using the command line?

 

Thanks

Is this impossible? 

 

I can't be the only one who needs to do this...

Re: Modify network connection for multiple server profiles

you can create a script to use the CLI. I haven't done it in some time, but I used to  use 'plink' from the 'putty' package to feed a text file with all the commands to setup a VC from scratch.  A simple search turned up someone who is using the CLI via powershell

Re: Modify network connection for multiple server profiles

The only way i can think of is to do it through CLI, read the CLI command mentioned above and you will figure it out.
