I'm attempting to set up a virtual machine in VMWare Fusion (2.0.5) but am having issues getting bridged networking to start. Whenever I start a virtual machine that I wish to use bridged networking I am given the following error: "The network bridge device on /dev/vmnet0 is not running".
sudo /Library/Application\ Support/VMWare\ Fusion/boot.sh --restart does not fix this. An attempt to edit
boot.sh to bind to
bond0 instead of
en0 wasn't successful.
On this server it's currently running Mac OS X Server 10.4.11 but will be updated to Mac OS X Server 10.6 in a couple months.
So, is it possible to use bridged networking with VMWare Fusion on a Mac that has a bonded network link? Is this only a Tiger limitation?
EDIT: Upgrading to Snow Leopard and 2.0.6 had no effect.
