Hello Experts,

I'm trying to configure a Virtual interface with the ip address 192.168.99.111, but each time the VM picks up and inserts ip address 10.1.24.110, see image. However, the command line shows 192.168.99.111.

What is the OS ?

The description of the interface is Local Area Connection 3?

Is this the wrong nic you are configuring?

I have seen something similar a while ago after adding a NIC assigning a IP, the removing the NIC readding it etc..

If you can take a brief network outage on the Vm do the following
1) make sure VM tools is installed
2) In properties of VM remove the NIC'(s)
3) In Device Manager right click each Nic and select uninstall
4) l recommend a reboot just to be safe
5) In Properties of a VM add a NIC preferably VMXNET3
