vcenter vm hardware ethernet: connect
Connects a virtual Ethernet adapter of a powered-on virtual machine to its backing. Connecting the virtual device makes the backing accessible from the perspective of the guest operating system.
For a powered-off virtual machine, the update operation may be used to configure the virtual Ethernet adapter to start in the connected state when the virtual machine is powered on.
