multiple capture interfaces on a virtual environment

Hello All,


I am deploying a virtual environment of Netwitness for Packets that needs more than one capture interface receiving traffic on the Packet Decoder.

During the installation, I realized that the Virtual Packet Decoder OVA comes with only 2 network interfaces. Since one of them is for mgmt, I would have to add a new one so I can have two interfaces for traffic capture.


I also realized that, on the Packet Decoder configuration, I can only select one capture interface from the dropdown presented on the GUI.


I'd like to know if I can add a new network interface to the packet decoder virtual machine normally and if there is a way to select more than one capture interface on the packet decoder.


I also need to set an IP address to one of these capture interfaces.

Could I set an IP to this interface as well?



Could any one help me with this?


Thanks in advance.
