VM NIC Issue

One more thing - Had a 2008 vm that I created, installed the OS, but for some reason wouldn't connect to anything. Device Manager showed Ethernet Controller as being unrecognized, and said that it needed drivers. There were no connections showing in connection manager. Installing vmware tools did not solve it.

I shut down the server, downloaded the .vmx file to my laptop, edited it in wordpad, added this line:

ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"

above the other references to ethernet0.

Saved another copy of the old .vmx to be safe, uploaded the new copy, and everything was golden. My resource was this:

Time for jiu jitsu.

Carry on!
