vsphere 4.1 update 1
I've cloned my 2nd win2008r8 VM today. I have had the same problem both times. I am using a Customization Specification (as a I do with all win2003 and win2008x32 clones).
I have specified an E1000 NIC. The Device Manager in the cloned win2008r2 VM sees the NIC, but the Network Sharing Center does not see the NIC. I have to remove it from the Device Manager and Scan for new hardware so that it re-discovers it, then I re-configure with my settings and it works.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and discovered a fix?
vmware tools is installed ?
mayber E1000 not is apropriate choice for this guest os.
try with vmxnet3
