By default VirtuCache Management VM is configured with only eth0. If an additional interface (eth1) needs to be configured for this VM follow the below steps.

Using edit settings menu on the VM, add a new network adapter to the VM.

VirtuCache Management VM runs Ubuntu. In Ubuntu there is a file /etc/network/interfaces. This file is read by the Ubuntu boot scripts which in turn configure the network according to that file. If you would like to know what could go into that file, type “man interfaces”.

Now IP address for eth1 can be configured in /etc/network/interfaces like below:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
address 192.168.20.20
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.20.0
broadcast 192.168.20.255
gateway 192.168.20.250
The first two lines are standard. Rest of the lines define a static network configuration for eth1 and this static configuration gets active automatically on every boot.
