Are You sure that eth1 is proper newtork interface name?
Check all network interfaces with

Code: Select all

ifconfig -a
You can also try change network interface type in vmware configuration

Use ip link to show available interfaces (ifconfig may not be installed, it's not default). It's quite unlikely that the interface is called eth$anything unless y ou have passed the correfct parameters to the kernel at boot time (also not default).

And 6.9 is out of date so once you get your network up and running, be sure to yum update to 6.10 + the latest fixes in the last 6 months or so.
