    Description

      ISSUE
      =====
      NIC adapter type becomes e1000 , even after changing the global parameter "vmware.systemvm.nic.device.type" to vmxnet3.

      Description
      =========

      Repro steps:-

      -> Set global parameter "vmware.systemvm.nic.device.type" to vmxnet3.
      -> Created a VPC network and deployed a VM using the same network.
      -> Checked the router details and found that for private network , it was showing nic adapter type as VMXNET3 and for other networks (public and guest) it was showing as E1000.
      -> Rebooted the VPC network and checked it again, it was same as earlier.

      /vmfs/volumes/94ec1ec2-0df8514b/r-2784-VM # grep virtualDev r-2784-VM.vmx
      pciBridge4.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort"
      pciBridge5.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort"
      pciBridge6.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort"
      pciBridge7.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort"
      scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic"
      ethernet0.virtualDev = "vmxnet3"
      ethernet1.virtualDev = "e1000"
      ethernet2.virtualDev = "vmxnet3"
      ethernet3.virtualDev = "vmxnet3"
