No host or ip address assigned to vmware image.

I'm running a 9.10 ubuntu server guest instance using vmware server 2.

I'm using NAT.

However under the summary screen the "DNS Name" and "IP Addresses" fields say "Not Available".

How do I get a DNS name and ip address to be assigned?

Are the network using DHCP? You can issue the command 'sudo dhclient' to refresh the DHCP address from the network.

Have you tried switching from 'NAT' in WMware to 'Brigde mode' for the client?
