on the host when i type esxcfg-nics -l I can see vmnic0, i can see the mac address and the the driver e1000e. But it's shown as down and half duplex. Vsphere infra client under networking I see vmnic0 but it's reporting that it's full duplex and down. But in hardware status it lists vmnic0 as false to duplex full and connection status disable.
I tried forcing the vmnic0 to 100mbps and duplex but nothing happens. I changed cables and ports and it's the same result so it's not a port or cable issue.
I also know that the nic port works as i swapped the drive out and replaced it with my windows vista OS drive and the nic works perfectly.
I don't know why or what is causing the nic to be disable. Vsphere sees it so it can't be an issue with the HCL.

When we get this error we need to do some changes in the vCenter advanced settings to fix the issue.
