can you make sure that the additional network is been added under "device manager"  and that it is not disabled?

Have you installed VMware Tools?

What adaptors are these E1000 or VMXNET3 ?

Andrew,

VMware tools isn't installed.

Can you provide your link providing guidance on how to install vmware? I guess I could look it up if you don't have it to hand.

You need to install VMware Tools for the VMXNET3 interface.

It's wise to always uise the VMXNET3 interface than the E1000 after OS installation.

so, install with the E1000, and then later change.

Once the OS is installed, the first thing you should do is install VMware Tools.

Experts,

I think I spoke too soon.

I still can't ping any of the interfaces added the VM host.

Do I need to open another question?
