I have a Win 7 x64 Host with VMWare Server 2.02 installed. On a previous install of Win7 on this machine, I had everything working fine with VMWare server. This time, my virtual machines can not get a dhcp address. I have them set to use bridging.

I found some posts mentioning that a wrong adapter could get bridged. I do have multiple adapters because virtual box is currently installed. So I explicitly set vm0 to bind to my physical adapter.

If I set an IP address manually, I can ping IPs local to the host from the guest, but nothing else on the same LAN.

Any ideas what I'm missing?

VirtualBox was also bridged on the adapter. Apparently they can't both do that at the same time. I turned that off, rebooted the box, and vmware could attach properly.
