  • From another VM on my server I checked to make sure I could still browse the network
  • I removed the vNIC from the VM
  • I enabled hidden devices for device manager (set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1) and then ran devmgmt.msc to remove any hidden vNIC devices from Device Manager
  • Added a vNIC back to the VM (at this time I was still using the Flexible type vNIC).
  • Rebooting the VM still didn’t give me any network connectivity, I just had an APIPA address allocated.
  • At this stage I changed the NIC to the VMXNet 3 and rebooted, still no luck.
  • Finally I re-installed VMware Tools to ensure that the VMXNet 3 drivers were installed correctly.
