Adding vNIC to an ubuntu VM

More Posted time:Mar 30, 2017 23:20 PM
Hi Folks,
I created a VM ubuntu for testing but I need to have two vNICs instead of one.
Is that possible? If so, how can I add it & configure it?

If you only see one NIC, then you must be purchased VPC network  ECS instance, which only has one NIC. The public IP is a Nat IP.

Alibaba Cloud activated its switch-to-VPC policy on June 16, 2016 at 12:00 to improve network experience. Users without ECS instances of a classic network type (instances either in running or stop status) in regions that have implemented the policy can only buy ECS instances of the VPC type in these regions. This policy will be implemented in stages according to the region.
