Hello
Solaris is installed on a VMware virtual machine.
After installation I installed VMtools to add VMXNET3 virtual NIC.
I also have second physical NIC E1000g that I cant plumb, it says that the interface is not found.
I used these manuals to setup the virtual NIC and to define network properties:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/816-5166/6mbb1kq31/
http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2009199

I can see the VMXNET3 NIC and my network configurations (IP, Default GW,Subnet) , I can send ping to my IP and default gateway but I can't ping to othe computers.

please help

Hi

if you have added the network interface on you vmware you shall be able to see it on OS

try following on Solaris to check how many network interfaces you are seeing

dladm show dev

if everything is correct on vmware you should see the second interfae

Regarding this:
"I can see the VMXNET3 NIC and my network configurations (IP, Default GW,Subnet) , I can send ping to my IP and default gateway but I can't ping to othe computers."

did you set the default gateway ?

netstat -nr

will show you if you have a gateway defined

Regards.
