Is there any way we can change the vmnic to half duplex full duplex other than Esxi host's nic? or Would you  advice to change the seeing other than leave it as default?
One of the VM is dropping from network despite changing the nic to vmnxnet3, not the other VMs on the same host.

duplex settings in the virtual machine do not have any impact. it's virtual.

You should ensure that the hosts networking, is setup correctly, speed and duplex settings match your physical switch, and the firmware and physical switch vendor is compatible with your hosts networking.

and make sure you have correct firmware updates for host network interfaces.
