Yesterday Morning I showed up for work and found a virtual machine all buggered up due to some application errors in java. My only recourse was a timely reboot. During the reboot I found it stuck on the following:
Guest Unable to collect IPv4 routing table
This was a first for me. I originally assumed that it was caused by an operating system issue (which it is see RHBA-2013:1290) but there really is only work around’s at this time. You can follow the official route which is documented here. Or a nice work around that works every time here. I have tested both and they work but I hate modifying the vmx file. This is a really nasty bug that needs to be fixed and I hope VMware will soon.
