Not able to RDP into the exchange server and VMware tools not running and IP address is blank

Hi
We use VMware and our exchange 2007 server while taking a backup it was frozen for some reason and I hard reboot the server. After I rebooted the exchange server on the vSphere, I right clicked the server and logged into the exchange server and the server is up and running now.
The interesting thing is, I am not able to RDP into the server and It was working ok and all of sudden this has happened after the server was rebooted from a frozen state. On the vSphere client if I click the server – Summary – It says VMware tools not running.
IP addresses is blank.
Please suggest how to resolve this.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What version of VMWare are you running??  We experienced issues when running VMWare 5.5 and the VMWare NICS were the E1000 adapter...
Was a fix released in 5.5 Update 1:

VMware ESXi 5.5 Update 1 Release Notes

Under Resolved Issues then under Networking Issues.  There was a bug for disconnects with the VMXNET3 driver and a bug for a PSOD with the e1000 vmnic driver.

The current version of vSphere client is 5.5.0.
We  are going to migrate our exchange to 0365 in another 3-4 Months and if it is not going to cause any further problem , I am happy to console the exchange server from the vsphere client.
