I am creating a spam filter on our vmware cluster (3x G7 HP servers) from a 2008 R2 template after deleting a server which spam server software reset the host. (I had no admin pass someone else created it). So I set the network adapter to the same IP, tried a different static IP as well, and upon reset the gateway will not stay. When I open network adapter properties the gateway is missing each time. I tried uninstalling and reconfiguring, deleting previous server from dns and adding new server but DG will not stay.

Does it have more than one network card?
As this is just a VM, I would shut down the VM, remove ALL network addaptors from the settings and then Add a new one.
Now fire up the VM and set the settings.
