Hi,

I have installed vmware esxi 5.5 in my new server. and installed windows 2012 standard server r2 on it's as a virtual machine.

While installation time I had selected 2 lan and below option.
Network as VMNetwork and Adapter as VMXNET

So after installation I did not seen LAN adapter in my virtual machine.  Its asking for Driver.

Do I did something wrong?

Please help me connect my virtual machine in network.

The driver still needs to get installed. Run a VMWare tools installation via your control tool (e.g. vSphere) , which will run a CD emulation to allow for installation of the tools in the VM.

- Change NIC to VMXNET3 and install VMware Integration services

Set up one connection for the Virtual Machine as Bridged which is VMnet0. This is sure to work. Run the Virtual Network Editor with Run as Administrator so you can see all the settings.

This is ESXi 5.5 on a server, not Workstation.

The reason is as stated, you are missing the step of installing VMWare tools into your guest os.
