I am using vRA 8.2 and facing issue of Windows VMs network disconnected after the successful deployment. I have to connect the network card on vCenter. whereas the same for Linux VMs works without any issue.
Any idea to resolve this issue.
I have the same problem after machine recovery from backup. The network card is disconnected. Everything works fine with provisioning, The network card also disconnects after shutting down or restarting the VM
Definitely a possibility. Now that you mention it I remember running into some similar weirdness when trying to use cloud-init / cloudbase-init in conjunction with static IP assignments from our IPAM solution. I kind of got the impression those solutions assume/expect you to be using DHCP. I wound up dropping those configs from my cloud template and using ABX PowerShell actions to call Invoke-VMScript and run configuration tasks in the guests that way.
