Duplicate interfaces in Windows VMs

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • This issue affects Windows 2016 Std 64 bits. The guests might have more than 1 interfaces and the first symptom is that the guest OS froze.

  • When the VM is rebooted, some interfaces are duplicated and disabled in the device manager.

  • Those interfaces have to be manually reconfigured.

  • The latest virtio drivers from Red Hat are included in the Windows images.


  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10.0 (RHOSP)
