On start up VMware Fusion popup displays, "Could not connect 'Ethernet1' to virtual network (vmnet5). More information can be found in the vmware.log file. Virtual device 'Ethernet1' will disconnect.". The issue persists in each virtual device (Ethernet) after Ethernet0, Ethernet0 cannot connect to the internet. The Ethernet1 works if used with 'Share with my Mac' but is needed to be run on a custom vmnet(vmnet10) to which the windows server ethernet network cable remains unplugged with no resolution. I've tried restarting the Mac, uninstalling and reinstalling VMware Fusion, checking for update, creating a new VM, removing and adding a new network adapter, etc. I'm currently running VMware Fusion Pro 12.2.3 (up-to-date) on a Macbook Pro macOS Monterey v12.4. Please and thank you!
Could you attach
I am not surprised that your virtual network behaves strange.
You renamed or labelled your vmnet5 to vmnet10.
Do you really need to do that ? - if you specify vmnet10 in any of your vmx-files strange behaviour is to be expected.
I would suggest suggest to review your vmnets and do some housekeeping.
Please attach vmware.log and the vmx-file of your misbehaving VMs.
