update windows 2016 network driver in VM


I just setup a new Windows 2016 VM.  The Ethernet Controller and Base System Device have an exclaimation mark in device manager.

Anyone knows the location on the windows 2016 dvd to update the drivers?

I picked VMXNET3 when I built the VM.

Did you install VMware Tools after you installed the OS ?

as VMware Tools is a VMware software product it is not shipped with the Microsoft Windows Server 2016 media, as they do not have the rights to distribute.

After you install the OS, the first thing you should do is install VMware Tools, and then Template.

We usually install with E1000 network interface, and then install VMware Tools, and then Install updates, switch to VMXNET3, and then template.
