    Vmware workstation 15.5 on linux losing vmnet configuration across reboots

    abkrahn1 Lurker

      Hello fellow users,
      I have installed vmware workstation pro 15.5 but I'm experiencing some inconsistencies from the vmware networks (vmnet1/vmnet8). After reboots, these networks will always change to some random networks ie 172.X.X.X or 192.148.X.X even after I have changed them with network editor. I have to stop and start the following service to bring up the networks to my correct settings..
      systemctl start vmware-networks.service

      Has anyone run into these vmware networking issues? Any solution that can be shared??/

      This is what i would like to have after reboots..
      vmnet1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
              inet 192.168.144.1  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.144.255
              inet6 fe80::250:56ff:fec0:1  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
              inet6 fdfe:9042:c53d:0:250:56ff:fec0:1  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x0<global>
              ether 00:50:56:c0:00:01  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
              RX packets 3290  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
              RX errors 0  dropped 342  overruns 0  frame 0
              TX packets 91  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
              TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

      vmnet8: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
              inet 192.168.140.1  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.140.255
              inet6 fe80::250:56ff:fec0:8  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
              ether 00:50:56:c0:00:08  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
              RX packets 1404  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
              RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
              TX packets 79  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
              TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

      But the interfaces will change after every reboot..

      Thank you..
