I'm running a VM (Linux CentOS 6.6) on a ZBook PC host (CentOS 6.5) with VMware Workstation 12 Pro.
The VM has a eth0 interface, connected with the NAT network of VMware (vmnet8 interface of the host).
When I start the PC and run the VM : the eth0 interface of the VM remains 'DOWN', with 'ADDRCONF (NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready' in /var/log/messages of the VM.
When I connect the PC host to the internet (ethernet or wifi), the eth0 interface of the VM changes to 'UP', with :
e1000: eth0 NIC Link is Up 1000 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: None
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
Even when I disconnect the PC host connection, the interface remains 'UP', till I reboot the PC host.
Is there any way to have the eth0 UP at VM startup, independantly of the PC host connexion ?
Thank you for your help,
