I have moved a virtual machine from a vmware host to another, after the copy when I power on the vm on the second host she doesn't see any network adapters.

first host: vmware ESXi41
second host: vmware ESXi41
guest os: windows 2008 server r2

If I power on again on first host all is ok
Thanks

Are the switchport names the same on both hosts? Go into edit settings for the NIC and hit the dropdown, then select the network to connect to.

The switchport name on both hosts was the same ad the NIC was connected to it.
I solved by removing the NIC from the hardware devices list and adding it again.
Thanks bgoering your answer put me in the right direction
