Add Network Adapters to 8.1.1 Cluster Mode Simulator

I am running the 8.1.1 cluster mode simulator in vSphere.  When I click edit settings and look at the number of Network adapters in the vsim, it shows 4 of them.  I have tried adding additional network adapters, but get the following error message in the picture below.  I have tried shutting down the simulator and adding it and tried several things within the vSphere server networking to be able to add additional network adapters and cannot make it work.

I know that it is possible to additional NICs as I just sat through the cluster mode class and there were six NICs in the labs for the class.  So, just like adding disks to the simulator I am assuming that this is something that needs to be done within the simulator.  Can anybody tell me how to add additional NICs to the simulator as I really need them for setting up a demo of load sharing mirrors.  Plus with cluster mode, it would just be really helpful to be able to add NIC ports in the simulators.

 

thanks,
