open vSphere Client
remove network adapter eth0
Add New device type Network Adapter vmxnet3
modify network settings with new IP address
just do it nothing happens eth0 still not found.
On the appliance are the vmware-tools 8.6.0 installed.
the vmxnet3 driver is version 184.108.40.206
It seems i must upgrade the vmxnet driver or the vmware tools to version 9
But if i mount the tools i cannot install them because they are installed .
"VMware Tools cannot be installed, since they have already been installed using a package-based mechanism (rpm or deb) on this system. If you wish to continue, you must first remove the currently installed VMware Tools using the appropriate packaged-based mechanism, and then restart this installer. Execution aborted.
