Need to reset virtual NIC daily

NytroZ asked
Last Modified: 2015-09-08
I have a Windows 8 workstation that has connectivity issues every morning.  Every morning we need to disconnect the network adapter then re-connect it again so the workstation can be accessed by the rest of the network.  The workstation is a Windows 8.1 virtual machine hosted on ESXi 5.5.  The other guests on the host have no issues.  I have tried to delete the NIC and  change the type from E1000 to VMX but it did not help.  Any idea what may be happening here?
