I have virtualize 3 of my servers via the standalone converter with no problem. For some reason I have one that will not obtain an IP via DHCP. If I configure it manually it looks good but cannot ping communicate etc:

I am using the VMware accelerated amd pcnet adapter with VMware tools.

Stumped please help, thanks!!!!

delete the NIC from the vm config, save, edit and add a new NIC. Work 99 times out of 100

I assume that you DHCP Pool has enough capacity for the connection?

Also I hate the use of "Flexible! Use VMXNet3 NIC

I assume that "VM Network" is the only or Correct network for the NIC to connect to?
You dont have multiple configured and your on the wrong one?

What is the guest OS, version and edition?
What is the ESX version? Is it a cluster? Do you have several physical network cards in the host?
Could you send an screenshot of the host -> configuration -> networking -> virtual switch.
I have seen that your VM is "version 4". Can you try upgrading to version 7? Can you try selecting E1000 as network adapter in the settings of the VM? http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1001805

weirdest thing... the server had ISA client software on it. After the conversion I would uninstall the programs I no longer needed in my virtual enviornment, deleting the ISA client for some reason was causing the nic to act crazy.
