Had a problem today starting a VM that used a bridged network connection, when starting the VM I got this message;
“The network bridge device on /dev/vmnet0 is not running”
The night before I’d been using a VPN connection from the VM and paused it before shutting down, today, plugged into a different subnet and then fired up this VM and the problem occurred.
The solution I found that works is to run this command from Terminal;
sudo /Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Fusion/boot.sh --restart
Thanks to another WordPresser here for the fix 🙂
