Virtual interface assignment can't be done in CLI interface assignment
I have added new VMXNET3 interfaces to the pfSense VM and migrated the working E1000 Interfaces to the new VMXNET3 interface. Those E1000 Interfaces are currently unused and I want to remove them from the Virtual Machine from the VMware. As soon as I remove those E1000 Interfaces and restart the pfSense, it detects that some NIC has been removed (while there were not assigned to any Interface) and running the interface assignment script on the CLI mode. I tried to assign interfaces again to get rid of the issue but I had some Interfaces which has been assigned to GRE tunnels. When the CLI script requesting for the NIC which belongs to those Interfaces I don't have the choice to select GRE tunnels !! If I leave it empty and hit enter the script will stop and will not ask for the rest of Interface assignment.
Can you please advice how can I remove those non-used NICs from my Virtual Machine ?

- Subject changed from GRE interface assignment can't be done in CLI interface assignment upon reboot to Virtual interface assignment can't be done in CLI interface assignment
- Category set to Interfaces
- Affected Version set to All
- Affected Architecture All added
The same is likely true of many virtual interface types (GIF, GRE, etc) and the solution is likely the same for all of them.
