DS201 VM does not connect to internet

I tried to set up the lab environment for the course DS201. I downloaded DS201-VM-6.0.ova and set up the VM instance.

I typed ‘ifconfig’ command at the terminal window of the VM. I could not see the IP address assigned for enp0s3 network device.

I restarted the VM for few times, still it the same.

Please let me know if I miss something. I attach the screenshot.

Thanks for looking into this Erick,

Later that day, I discovered that the issue was Network adaptor type setting. The the DS201 image came up with the Adaptor type as 'Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop(82540EM). I changed that to PCnet-FAST III. Then, it started to work. Please find the screenshot

As it shows in the screenshot you posted, the VM is using an IPv6 address:

enp0s3    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 08:00:27:32:1e:dd  
          inet6 addr: fe80::a00:27ff:fe32:1edd/64 Scope:Link

[UPDATE] VirtualBox network configuration issue.
