Satellite 6 => Configure multiple network cards with static IP’s during host provisioning on VMWare

Satellite 6 offers the possibility to provision a host with multiple network cards, however an issue is faced when using VMWare in conjuction with Satellite 6 and you want to provision multiple network interfaces with static IP addresses.

What happens is that after the provisioning of a virtual machine is complete, multiple network cards are added, but only the primary interface (which is used for PXE / DHCP during installation) is configured correctly.

I created a workaround to get this working. I described this solution in an official Red Hat KCS article which is now verified by Red Hat Engineering and published to the public. You can find this article here.
