Question:
We are currently using the E1000 VMware network adapter.

Can the Agile Central on-premise appliance be configured to use the VMware VMXNET3 network adapter?
Answer:
Support has tested this configuration and the appliance will load a driver and acquire an IP address for an VMXNET3 network adapter.

After adding the adapter, you may log into the console and view the dmesg output:
[root@rallyonprem-oraclese ~]# dmesg 
... 
[ 3.341677] VMware vmxnet3 virtual NIC driver - version 1.4.7.0-k-NAPI 
[ 3.341702] vmxnet3 0000:03:00.0: # of Tx queues : 2, # of Rx queues : 2 
[ 3.350121] vmxnet3 0000:03:00.0: irq 58 for MSI/MSI-X 
[ 3.350537] vmxnet3 0000:03:00.0: irq 59 for MSI/MSI-X 
[ 3.350567] vmxnet3 0000:03:00.0: irq 60 for MSI/MSI-X 
[ 3.351566] vmxnet3 0000:03:00.0 eth0: NIC Link is Up 10000 Mbps 

Additionally, if you have DHCP configured, it should pick up an IP address automatically at that point:
[root@rallyonprem-oraclese ~]# ip addr 
...
