    hello
    thanks for the question.
    are they all in vmnet 0 - the bridge group?
    are they all doing dhcp?
    were these systems cloned?
    thanks!

      thank you for your replay

      are they all in vmnet 0 - the bridge group? - Yes

      are they all doing dhcp? - No none of them dhcp. they are all static.

      were these systems cloned? - Yes - i install one server than cloned the rest.

      what do you think ?

        hi Puma95

        Did you use Workstation to clone the VM's? or just copy the directories and add them into VMware?

        I am guessing it has to do with duplicate MAC addresses on the VM's. Here are some things to check...

        Check the VMX files for each VM. Is there a hardcoded MAC in there?

        If you check the properties of each VM - do they all have different computer names and different IP addresses?

        Thanks
