View Full Version : [ubuntu] Moving it to ESXi, but have no network

February 25th, 2010, 07:43 PM
Hey guys.

I have this 7.10 Ubuntu server that I'm trying to move inside a VM on my ESXi server. I use the VMware Conversion tool and everythings goes well until I try to boot it from inside the VM, the network isn't detected. Now I understand that the drivers may not be working, I'm not an expert here. Also, since this is a 7.10 install I don't have access to the Gutsy repositories anymore. If you have any idea, I would really appreciated it. Thanks

I had a similar problem with 9.04. Turned out to be a mac address config issue. Option 1 worked for me but option two might also work from what I've read. Not sure if this applies to your version.

Steps Option 1:

open file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules in text editor
change remove the line containing "eth0"
rename teh line containing "eth1" to "eth0"
restart udev

Steps Option 2:

Delete or move both ".rules" files located in /etc/udev/rules.d
restart udev
