Hello Mauro,
We had a little bug in our vmware-sensor that sometimes caused the sensor select the wrong datas from the server.
It seems it happens only on virtualmachines where the network-setting was altered after initial setup, e. g. changing the ethernetcard from VMXNET3 to E1000 or adding a new networkcard.

The Problem is fixed with builds > If you can't update to the current version for any reason please contact [email protected] to find a solution.
Kind regards...
