I created a VM with workstation 9 and imported it into Esxi 4.1. It seems to have the occasional network connectivity issue which i can work around by simply logging into the machine from the lab manager or sphere console.

The error in the properties of the machine is this:

Problem detected with Service Virtual Machine. This may affect Host Spanning network connectivity.

Host: vmwarehost.something.uk
Service Virtual Machine which was powered on has changed its state outside of vCenter Lab Manager.

is the virtual NIC of the guest computer working in Bridged mode? has the physical NIC been correctly recognised under ESXi?

Make sure that you have updated VMware Tools, and also use the VMXNET network interface and not the E1000 interface.

Thanks Andrew, that was it. I had refreshed the mac address on the network card and re-installed vmware tools but that didn't help. That error i posted still seems to come up but after i deleted the e1000 interface, created a new vmxnet interface, re-installed vmware tools and rebooted it seems to be stable so i think that's it.
