Hoping for some help with some network issues I am experiencing with VMware Workstation 15 Pro (15.5.6) running Windows Server 2016 Datacenter x64 (10.0.14393). My host is Windows 10 Enterprise x64 (10.0.19042).
I have one network adapter configured as VMnet2 (NAT), which has been communicating fine for a few weeks. All of a sudden (while the VM was running) the network adapter stopped communicating with my host completely. This has happened once before, where I had to delete and use a previous backup of the VM.
Points of note:
Other VMs are still communicating normally (so I have not tried re-installing VMware)
When trying to ping out, get "General failure"
Under the VM net adapter the bytes sent and received is increasing intermittently (sent is approx 3 times as many as received)
VM Windows Firewall has been turned off the whole time and there is no antivirus
VMNAT and VMDHCP services are running on my host
Wireshark is detecting traffic on the interface (assuming receiving)
What I have tried:
Disabling, re-enabling network adapter
Restarting virtual machine
Removing and re-adding the virtual network adapter
Configuring network adapter as different type (NAT and bridged through custom vnets, NAT and bridged through built ins)
Updated VMware Tools (11.0.6)
Searching forums for other things to try
I have tried a USB network adapter (connecting the USB to the VM) and this doesn't work either
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
