If you are running NetMon on a VMware vSphere virtual machine (VM), you must run a script (AddEth.pl) to ensure that the correct management and capture interfaces are detected and that interface selection works as expected.
To access the configuration utility:
Run a normal install. For more information, see Install NetMon Software.
Log in to the NetMon console using the logrhythm account.
Run the AddEth.pl script:
If you are using DHCP, type sudo /usr/local/probe/scripts/AddEth.pl -m <management interface> -r <recovery interface> -b <bonded interface>,<bonded interface>,…
The comma-separated list of bonded interfaces is where you can add the new interfaces on the
To specify a single interface to capture, use -c instead of -b.
If you are using a Static IP, type sudo /usr/local/probe/scripts/AddEth.pl -m <management interface> -r <recovery interface> -b <bonded interface>,<bonded interface>,… -i <static IP> -s <netmask> -g <gateway>
As with DHCP, you can specify where the new PCI card interfaces are used and how.
For help with using the AddEth.pl script, run the following command:
sudo /usr/local/probe/scripts/AddEth.pl -h
Restart the system.
On the Linux console, run ip a to see the IP of the NetMon system.
Finish the configuration.
