Server 2008 VM losing Default Gateway

After reinstalling the VMware tools because the mouse pointer was “jumpy”. I rebooted the server and I was unable to ping it anymore. I noticed that the server did not have a gateway anymore after I just put it in. So, I did it again and still could not ping the server. After a few reboots and removing the adapter I realized this was a bigger problem. So I reset the TCP/IP stack by typing netsh int ip reset. Then I just put back in my static ip w/ the gateway.

On a side note, it was great to find out that this was OS related.
