This is what I have in .vxm file:

ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"
ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE"
ethernet0.addressType = "static"
ethernet0.address = "00:50:56:2E:E2:45"
ethernet0.linkStatePropagation.enable = "TRUE"
ethernet1.present = "TRUE"
ethernet1.vnet = "VMnet1"
ethernet1.connectionType = "custom"
ethernet1.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE"
ethernet1.addressType = "static"
ethernet1.address = "00:50:56:3F:86:30"

And this is how I configured the network interface at Vmware

configuration works fine in a CentOS 6.5 VM
