Good Morning All,
I was wondering if there is a way to assign different physical NICs to my different VMachines hosted in a Windows based server running VMware Workstation. Thanks for all your help. Note: I am not allowed to have multiple MAC addresses on the same physical network.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To assign different physical NICs to different virtual machines, you need to create an external virtual network. Once you’ve made an external virtual network, you can then connect as many virtual machines to it as you want. Then you can go ahead and assign the different NICs to each virtual machine. If you notice poor performance with the virtual machines, create a separate external virtual network for each virtual machine.
