    Duplicate IP address for different NIC adapter after conversion

    cngoh Novice

      Hi all,

       

      I am running ESXi 4.1 server. Recently I converted 1 win 2003 x64 server into VM. When I tried to change the IP address (same IP address for physical machine before conversion), I encountered the error message of duplicate IP on another NIC adapter. Please refer to error1 print screen. Actually I already refer to KB doc from VMware (Networking Error, IP Address Already Assigned to Another Adapter) but it doesn't work on my problem.

       

      So far, I can change the IP address but each time I open the network properties windows, this error message windows is prompt out.

       

      The Broadcom adpater is used for Trend Mirco Common Firewall drvier. Please refer to pic 1 & 2.

       

      Even I uninstall the Trend Mirco Common Firewall driver, I am still getting this error. Please refer to error1 print screen.

       

      Any impact to the system with this error?

       

      Please share your advise and recommendation.

       

      Thanks.
