"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is it the full version of ESX or is it ESXi ? What version?

In order to ensure Network Connectivity, you have to provide a Static IP.
Even though VMware allows IP to be leased using DHCP, I am against recommending its usage.

Its a good practice to bind the first NIC having the least PCI Number to the Service Console.

vswif0 is the Service Console which is in turn binded to vSwitch0.

What version of ESX have you installed ? ESX or ESXi and what is the build and version number ?

I helped someone rebuild their ESX networking stack via the local console ... maybe it can help you sort your's out if have installed ESX and not ESXi.
Run through the options on your local ESX console session to check / reset / reconfigure your ESX networking. Of course, subst IP's where needed
