    Vmware 6.5 fails to assign an ip for a linux vm if the network adapter is invalid

    Steven1314 Novice

        I am using vmware sdk to create a  linux vm(ubuntu) on vmware 6.5 by specifying a network adapter, which is an invalid value input wrongly.

      The network adapter should be vmxnet3, but it is written as vmxnet 3. After the vm is created, I found the network adapter is not what is specified,

      instead it is E1000. Besides, whenever I specify an un-existed network adapter to a vm, the vm will fail to get ip after it started.

        However, if I directly specify E1000 for a vm, it can successfully get an ip.

      I want to know the root cause for this problem. Could anyone help me?
