  • 1.  Fusion 12 and Host DHCP Issue

    Posted Oct 08, 2020 08:25 PM

    Since upgrading to Fusion 12, I've noticed a problem when my MacOS host (Catalina 10.15.7) tries to renew it's DHCP, it either fails or obtains an IP from one my virtual networks.  As soon as I just down Fusion, the issue goes away.

    Our DHCP is renewed every 4 hours.  So, as you can guess, I can only have VMs running for as long without having network connections.

    Anyone else seeing similar?

    There's another thread just posted about a VLAN environment terminating the host lease when Fusion is in bridged mode, so may be related.

    Can you try NAT?

    Thanks for the suggestions.  Unfortunately, that didn't work.  What I ended up doing is blowing away my "networking" configuration file and had Fusion recreate it.  I lost some of my virtual networks, but it least it seems to be working again.

    Hi  

    Do you mean your Catalina host gets an IP from Fusion virtual network? What's the output of command 'cat /Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/networking'?
