Have you ever wanted to re-configure your Virtual Machine with the up to date Virtual hardware configurations? then you should be looking for something like this. I wanted to update the Virtual network adapter to VMXNET 3 for my Virtual Machines and I could do that easily using the VMware PowerCLI. Basically it Convert Network Adapter to VMXNET 3 Network Adapter.
This piece of PowerCLI command converts the Network Adapter without changing the MAC address of the adapter. If you have MAC address bind license application you don’t need to manually change the MAC Address after changing adapter.
Get-VM <Virtual_Machine_name> | Get-NetworkAdapter | Set-NetworkAdapter -type vmxnet3 -confirm:$false
For Linux Virtual Machines….
No manual IP configuration required and VMware tools should be installed which is the Primary requirement for the VMXNET3 adapter
