Networking drop in Red Hat 5.4 VM

Networking drop in Red Hat 5.4 VM

Hi all,

I am posting this question to see whether any of you hear similiar issue before. We are facing this one

at the customer site now.

The VM (Red Hat Linux 5.4) is running on vSphere RTM. It is

running fine for a while. Then, if we leave it for some time, we found that we were

able to ping it. However, if you login it via vSphere console, just do a ifconfig, and then it will be able to ping again from outside. It looks like

something was suspended … Same VM running on SUN virtualization platform does not have

such issue.

BTW, firewall is turned off, VMware tool has been reinstalled.
