Hello,

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 under ESXi 4.1. This VM was running without any issue under another host that I needed to remove from the cluster.

After adding the VM to a new host the VM cannot see the Ethernet card anymore. When I type ifconfig I only see "lo" and no "eth" virtual cards.

I have tried E1000 and VMXNET3 but both doesnt show under Ubuntu.

What can I do ?

The problem is you've moved your VM to another host the mac address has since changed.

This site should guide you in resolving this problem :)
