I have a windows 7 Image on my Compute server. This server has multiple Network Interfaces installed. Currently, the Image has 1 Network Interface which is assigned an IP address and allows the VM to get connect to everything.

What I need to do is somehow add one of the other Physical Network Interfaces on my Compute Server as a second network interface on my windows 7 Image. This network interface is going to be used as a monitoring interface for the image. It doesn't need an IP or internet access or anything. I just need a physical interface that I can use with a tool like Wireshark.

Is this possible?

you can edit the original question and add more details as asked, no need to use the space for answers. Quite cool, this site doesn't have the limitations that normal forums have.

I think you can try the following document. Once your instance (Windows 7) see a second NIC then you can remove ip info anytime from second NIC settings in Windows 7.

Thank you but all this does is add a second Virtual Interface to the VM. Using the same physical interface to connect the Instance as the first Interface.

I need a way of doing exactly what this doc is saying, but to also have the secondary network attatched to a second Physical NIC on the compu
