VM NetworkVM Log
We continue to have random disconnects of the VMware machine.  We have troubleshooted the network switch and dont see an issue.  We have gone through other logs and can't seem to pin point the issue.

    What model of NIC is the VM using? E1000 or vmxnet/vmxnet3 ?

    VMware tools are up to date?

    Also is the VM having any resource contention issues?

    Check and replace the network cable.

    Accepted Solution

    If you 2nd NIC available, you can add it to vSwitch for redundancy. So, if vmnic0 goes down, it will not affect other VMs.

    I would probe more on what hanccocka has suggested. I would check the logs of switch too.
