Windows Server 2012 RC and VMware VMXNET3 driver

Now that there is a RC from Windows Server 2012 I wanted to test it.
I installed it on my VMware ESXi 5 environment with a VMXNET3 adapter.
After installation of the VMtools, the lan adapter did not respond properly.
Trying to change the lan adapter settings resulted in a Windows Server 2012 that did not respond anymore.
Also clean reboot was not possible.

I removed the VMXNET3 adapter and added the E1000 adapter.
Now everything works fine.

This issue will probably be solved with the next VMtools update.
