PA-VM Cannot ping eth1/2 internal interface

Hi Guys,


I am running a PA VM with a VM-100 license on vmware workstation 12.5. 


I have the mgmt interface bridged to my network and can access the PA GUI, CLI and the internet. 


For my internal interface i have setup eth 1/2 to vmnet3 and unchecked the "connect as host only adapter".


Also on the vmnet3 i have setup a DSL(**bleep** small linux) linux machine to simulate a client, and assigned a ping allow using int mgmt profile to the eth1/2 interface. 


But yet in the end i cannot ping the interface at all, nor can i ping the dsl machine from the PA-VM. 


A pcap from the PA shows that the eth1/2 interface never replies to the arp from the DSL client machine. 


Any help is really appreciated.

It might be related to mac address issue.

Mgmt uses hypervisor provided mac but network interfaces not.
