    Re: NIC Icon Missing and Unable to Set IP

    Has the networking been disabled / deleted in the host?

    What hypervisor?

      Running VMware Esxi

      VM had an issue and VMX file was deleted and after rebuild, the server came back on but I am unable to see the network.

        And the networking question?

            I'm glad you are, because no-one else is.

                Looks perfectly normal to me
                IP address assigned by APIPA so no DHCP server available

                Based on the evidence, when the VM was recreated, the original network card was replaced, so you will need to reconfigure the static IP address.

                I've seen similar before - seems to be "standard" windows behaviour.
                Note if you assign the static IP it had before, you may get a warning about IP already being assigned to a hidden network adaptor (or similar wording) so just carry on.

                  Problem is I am still not able to see network adaptor from the GUI and attempt to reconfigure IP address via command line I get rpc service not available. Any advise?

                    Try removing VMware tools and re-adding them again.

                        You never said you had done this!!!!!!!

                        Have you created the relevant VMX file or restored from a backup?

                        Does the NIC show in Device Manager??

                        Have you removed the NIC from the VM, rebooted, deleted all unattached devices then added a new NIC?
