For some reason recently for no rhyme or reason some of my virtual machines will disconnect their E1000 nic to where in VM settings it shows its not connected. You can select the connected check box and select okay, but when you go back in to settings it is unchecked again. I have been getting the VMXnet3 to work on these troublesome VM's but now it has happened on a linux box and I cannot get the E1000 to reconnect!. Can anyone give me any ideas or where to start to troubleshoot this?
Thanks alot! I need to get this host updated to 5.5 sometime soon but for now I will apply the workaround if you don't see any reason this should hamper performance to much? Thanks again for your quick response.
