VMWare bridged adapter not working:
Message from system: The network bridge on device vmnet0 is not running. The virtual machine will not be able to communicate with the host or with other machines on your network. Failed to connect virtual device Ethernet1.
I'm not sure how to fix this but one of the issues is that my eth0 became eth1 after moving my hard drives to a new motherboard. I have run the vmware-config.pl but this did not resolve the issue.
I already suspected the issue was that my eth0 no longer exists ever since I moved my HDD to a new server, it became eth1. Even running vmware-config it doesn't update it I did a grep "eth0" in /etc/vmware and found the "locations" file had numerous references to eth0.
I decided to use sed to replace all eth0 with eth1 like so:
sed -i 's/eth0/eth1/g' /etc/vmware/locations
Now restart vmware and finally your bridged network will work again.
It's beyond me why the vmware-config util can't figure this issue out or why there's nothing in the vmware management to change/edit/fix this issue.
