I have a vmware player virtual machine that I created under an Ubuntu system. When I copy it to another machine to run it there, the guest fails to start it's networking.
I found this link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=333349
But the file /etc/iftab doesn't exist on Ubuntu 10.10 host. Besides, won't that alter the host mac address, not the guest? Seems like an odd fix to me. Have they got that backwards. Shouldn't we be editing the vmx file?
I tried this by the way, put the host machine mac address for the adaptor I want into the vmx file but it didn't seem to correct the networking.
How do I fix this?
