Did you check the following:
  • Is the name of the machine in use by another machine?
  • Conflict of IP addresses. DHCP servers can dynamically add a host name to the DNS servers. When you switch between static and DHCP assigned IP addresses, you may have got name conflicts in the DNS servers.
  • ESXi generates a MAC address for the network adapter. Could it be that the same MAC address exists for another guest in your network (maybe on another ESXi server)?
  • When you use gigabit network, there could be problems in negotiating the frame sizes. This also causes intermittent periods of non-responsive network. However, these periods should be a few minutes, not as long as the 15 minutes you mention.Try fixing the MTU at 1500.

I checked the mac addresses through a program called Advanced ip scanner and i got the result of same mac address for both esxi and the vm running withing it. I made sure to change the address the vm is using but there is no difference on the output mac.
