[SOLVED] Add NIC to Proxmox PVE 8


Apr 16, 2021
I've been running PVE 8 with only one NIC for quite a awhile. I'd like to add a 2.5GB NIC and repurpose the current 1GB NIC later.
To do this, do I just replace the old NIC with the new NIC in the bridge (vmbr0) or is there more I have do?

The 1GB NIC will remain in the PVE.

Thanks for your help
