After a P2V backup I receive the following error when trying to power on the virtual machine:
Please specify a vpx Ethernet address for ethernet0.
Failed to configure ethernet0.
You need to edit the virtual machine configuration file: name.vmx
There may be a mismatch in the configuration file.
Look for those 2 lines:
ethernet0.addressType = “generated”
ethernet0.generatedAddress = “00:0c:29:30:de:cd”
MAC addresses can be one of 3 types:
-generated = auto created by the MUI (will have a 00:0c:29 address)
-vpx = auto created by Virtual Center (will have a 00:50:56 address)
-static = hard coded by you to a valid MAC address range that is registered to VMware, Inc.
So look at the MAC address present in your vmx file and then replace the addressType field with the right one.
