I am following http://goo.gl/HOyO4 to get the sandbox up and running on a Windows 7 64-bit Operating System with 4GB RAM which runs VMware Player version 5.0.0 build-812388.
The above mentioned instruction manual (in page-2 paragraph-2) highlights that “To use the Sandbox, you should have a Host-only network adapter with DHCP enabled”. However it covers only the first part of this statement which is “to setup a Host-only network adapter” but does not cover “how to have DHCP enabled for that Host-only network adapter”
When I power-on the sandbox with the default setup which is one NAT (eth0) and one Host-only (eth1), the sandbox Linux boot up failed to bring up the interface for eth1 (which is Host-only). The exact error is “Determining IP information for eth1… failed; no link present. Check cable? [FAILED]”.
And when the sandbox is up, it highlights “Connectivity issue detected! Check connection of Host-only interface and check DHCP is enabled for it” and no IP address (URL) is displayed!
On my host Windows 7, I ensured that VMware DHCP Service is running [control panel > administrative tools > services > VMware DHCP Service]
How could I setup a Host-only network adapter with DHCP enabled?
