After restoring a VM from archive, the restored VM boots with network adapter failures
Older version of vRanger, when restoring a ESX 3.5 VM to a ESX 4.1 host would cause a Network failure on certain OS's. The cause for this is that when restored the VM would be created as a HW version of 7 instead of 4 as the original was. This updated HW version may cause an issue with certain OS's.
Upgrade to the latest supported version of vRanger. This will allow a HW version 4 to be created on the newer host.
