Multiple gateways-error

Hi,

I used VMware converter plug in which is in vCenter 4 and I import a VM from VMware Server version 2.0.2 Build 203138 to ESX 4 server.

The import process was done successfully, but when we assigned the new IP, we faced an error (Multiple gateways) image attached.

Note: we disable network on the old server that has this IP and we shut it down.

Does anyone know what is the cause of this problem and how can we solve it?

Thanks in advance

Regards,

I haven't done this type of conversion (from VMware Server), but it sounds suspiciously like what you get with a P2V.

When you P2V, the hardware type of the ethernet adapter changes to a VMware adapter (e.g. vmxnet3). This makes it a different device to Windows, which I am assuming you are running. So, the old device still exists and its configuration is in the registry. I just doesn't show up, since it's "not connected."

If this is the case, you need to do the following (the process is documented here😞

1) Open a cmd prompt and run the following commands

1a) set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1

1b) devmgmt.msc

2) In Device Manager, go to View -> Show Hidden Devices

3) Open your Network Adapters section and Uninstall, including the driver that you no longer need, the old network adapter

4) Remove any other hardware that no longer applies to the guest
