I'm following the "Learn Puppet PDF and I've used both vmplayer 7 and now vmware workstation 11 both in bridged mode,

I've tired literally everything I can think of I even created a reservation using the mac address in my DHCP server running on windows 2012 r2.

it looks like it's getting the loop backup address 127.0.0.1

So there is NO OS installed in a virtual machine?

a virtual machine, uses an Intel E1000 network interface, the OS you have booted has no IP Address, because it cannot detect any hardware.

Hey Andrew!

I finally figured out what the problem was...

Mine was using an 8254 EM, -- I used that command to find out

lspci -nn | grep -i net

You see the main issue here is that this VM wasn't created by me it was created by the company Puppet themselves to learn puppet.

I started just troubleshooting nic card issues and virtual nic card issues

I went ahead and removed the vm since I had nothing going on and started over same issue...

so then I moved on and looked at everything going on in the console...

and I saw this ---> Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check cable

I researched the issue..

I looked at the physical hardware and virtual and remember I had a virtual switch set up that was being used for hyper V

so I removed the switch and re-confirmed everything was on bridge mode

and made it so it only was able to select my Ethernet card and bamm I have an IP address now and I moved on to the next step which is going in via SHH which now works :)

Puppet here I come :)

Thanks for your advise Andrew!
