Attaching the New Network Interfaces to Instances

Attaching the new network interfaces to CloudEOS and vEOS Router instances is the second networking configuration task. This task involves selecting the new network interfaces created in the previous procedure and then attaching the interfaces to CloudEOS and vEOS Router instances.

Complete these steps to attach the new network interfaces to CloudEOS and vEOS Router instances.

  1. Go to the EC2 Dashboard.
  2. Open the INSTANCES menu on the left side of the page, then click Instances.
    The page lists all of the current network interfaces.
  3. Select the CloudEOS and vEOS Router instance to attach a newly created network interface.
  4. Choose Actions > Networking > Attach Network Interface.
    The Attach Network Interface dialog appears.
  5. Using the Network Interface menu, select the new network interface created to attach to the instance.
  6. Click the Attach button.
  7. Use the show interfaces command on the CloudEOS and vEOS Router instance to view the new network interfaces created.
    Example
    CloudEOS and switch#show interfaces
    Ethernet1 is up, line protocol is up (connected)
     Hardware is Ethernet, address is 0235.4079.d2a8 (bia 0235.4079.d2a8)
     Ethernet mtu 8973 bytes, BW 10000000 kbit
     Full-duplex, 10Gb/s, auto negotiation: off, uni-link: n/a
     Up 20 minutes, 42 seconds
     [...]
    Ethernet2 is up, line protocol is up (connected)
     Hardware is Ethernet, address is 0287.4ba7.1f88 (bia 0287.4ba7.1f88)
     Ethernet mtu 8973 bytes, BW 10000000 kbit
     Full-duplex, 10Gb/s, auto negotiation: off, uni-link: n/a
     Up 20 minutes, 42 seconds
  8. Repeat steps 1 through 7 as needed to attach new network interfaces to instances.
