Ensure that the virtual nic is connected in "edit settings" option

Its likely that the VMNic is not connected at startup.
Like Paulsolov said, check the settings of the VM and check the checkbox "connect at startup"

Good Luck,

Another alternative is to try updating the NIC Drivers to the latest versions.

Is the Virtual nic connected/configured through "Manage Virtual network"?

I would say yes.. can you ellaborate a little bit more in your question? Do you mean if we set up the VMnet0??

xfreddieCommented:
Using manage virtual network it is possible to link a network card drectly to a VM.
But you just mentioned that you use VMnet0 , that is alway the bridging nic.

unless you have configured a different vmnet to the vm...
