VM network adapter – settings disappear

This was a strange issue I documented over a year ago. We kept having an issue where every time we rebooted the server in question it would lose its gateway setting on the NIC – they would just blank out. To resolve the issue, we set the adapter to obtain everything automatically (dynamically)…. Then rebooted… then set the settings back to static, then rebooted again.

This has something to do with ghost NICs – nothing we tried worked except this. Haven’t ran into it since…
