vmware server 2 - windows script to refresh network list

By greavette ·

Is there a windows command I can use in a script (.bat, vbscript, powershell...whatever) that would allow me to refresh the network list?

Currently when our host server (Windows 2008 r2) is restarted, my assigned nics in my VM mapped to my host PC's nics are not available unless I manually refresh the network list. I'd like to script this so my network list is refreshed whenever my host server is restarted.

I've seen reference to vmware-vim-cmd for refreshing the network list but maybe this is only for ESXi?

Thank you.
