I have a machine someone else set up for me.

I assign my Linux VM a PCI device (Emulex SRIOV with 8 ports)  I assign my VM the first port of the Emulex card

I start the VM, it has no internet access

(The VM is a clone of a VM that was working in a similar environment)

In the Linux, I perform


Open in new window

And I only see a loopback device, no other device

How should I resolve this

What Linux distro?

Is VMware Tools installed?

Have you added a normal nic interface?
