  • 1.  FPC its empty when add 2 port more

    I have a problem that when I add 2x25G FPC it starts perfectly online but when I add 2x40G plus FPC 0 it is empty, I will leave an image to better appreciate what I am saying.

    VCP & VFP

    CPUs:8
    vCPU:2
    Memory: 32g
    HDD: 130
    Adapter: 4x1G / 2x25G / 2x40G

    When I add 4 ports does not start the virtual fpc service
    Second picture, eithen 25G or 40G fpc it's online perfectly
    When I add 2 ports, either 25G or 40G fpc it's online perfectly

    Hey Jose,

    My scenario isn't exactly like yours but similar. I'm using Cisco CML for the vMX (VCP and VFP). 

    My default node definitions are (Ext and Int, then 4 Ge interfaces). If I added any more Ge interfaces to my vMX configuration, the FPC would either not show up, or be stuck in testing. 

    I noticed in my VFP messages logs, their was an "insufficient CPU" warning - even though I am using the recommended CPU/Memory, and the guest OS confirms it see's these. Instead of playing with the CPU's / Memory, I changed the VCP to lite-mode, commit , and REBOOT.

    This appears to be a workaround for me - maybe you can give this a try on your end.

    Hi,

    You didn`t mention the sim you are using, but in GNS and EVE you have to change the adapter types to VMWare Paravirtualized Ethernet to make them work properly.
