I'm using VMware and made a fresh install of windows server 2019 Version 1809. It is still configured as Workgroup and I want to migrate to Domain. I searched some tutorials but there is always one issue:
When I open the "network adapter - TCP/IPv4 - extended" it's not clear to me which IP-addresses to enter. I've tried some combinations and after closing all network adapter windows it always ends with a new window:
Windows network diagnosis - found problems - DHCP is for Ethernet0 not activated - solved
As my IP-settings are somehow based on beginners level I don't know the correct values.
An AVM Fritz!Box is my router with IP 192.168.100.10 so this is to enter as gateway (?) The router works as DHCP-Server and so DHCP is not needed in windows server 2019, right?
As I understand some posters it is recommended to set a static IP for the server, like 192.168.100.33 which is still free.
Please have a look at my 3 screenshots.

Possibly there is a problem with the VMware settings - network adapter?
Default was NAT, now I changed to Host-only, but no success.

one step further:
I changed network settings to Bridged -> network is now ok.
Still trouble with IP settings as network diagnosis starts after closing TCP/IP window.

so far my WS2019 works now as domain server/controller.
It seems important to set VMware Network Adapter to Bridged.
Now I can successfully ping from the host-OS to WS2019 in the VM.
In this site they use NAT as network connection so its not clear how this works
As described in document "Windows Server 2019-Step by Step Installation of Domain Controller"
finish your work:
Server Manager - Tools - DNS - Reverse lookup zone - New Zone - ...

Yes, setup the guest as bridged. Then domain controller and any members should have the static address of DC listed for DNS and no others such as router or public DNS
