Vsphere Issue Guest Unable to collect IPv4 routing table

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.
