The network fails to come up for a Websphere Cast Iron hypervisor appliance after being upgraded to 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206. The errors seen in the output of net show memory from the VM console are: FAILURE GETTING HW/MAC ADDRESS FOR INTERFACE: "ETH0" FAILURE GETTING HW/MAC ADDRESS FOR INTERFACE: "ETH1" SYSTEM ERROR: No such device
Set the VM Network Adapter type to E1000 and reboot
The network fails to come up for a WebSphere Cast Iron Hypervisor appliance after being upgraded to 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168. The errors seen in the output of "net show memory" from the VM console are: FAILURE GETTING HW/MAC ADDRESS FOR INTERFACE: "ETH0" FAILURE GETTING HW/MAC ADDRESS FOR INTERFACE: "ETH1" SYSTEM ERROR: No such device By default, when WebSphere Cast Iron Hypervisor Edition is installed it is configured to use E1000 network adapter. That is, the HVE's configuration describing how VMware should present "hardware" to the appliance causes e1000 drivers to be loaded within the appliance. This default configuration works properly, however optimized drivers such as Flexible, VMXNET2, and VMXNET3 do not work properly. This APAR could be an issue when HVE instances which have been modified this way are upgraded from 22.214.171.124 (or earlier) to 126.96.36.199 (or later). As a workaround, users should replace non-default virtual network adapters with E1000 virtual network adapters.
This APAR address the migration issues faced if users have customized the HVE configuration to use non-default network adapters. The fix is targeted for inclusion in WebSphere Cast Iron V188.8.131.52 and V184.108.40.206 Announcements of new fix packs are made on the WebSphere Cast Iron Support Portal at http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/Overview/Software/We bSphere_Cast_Iron_Cloud_integration Fix pack planned delivery schedules can be viewed here: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27036374
