Quick Info: VMware Workstation network not working

Lately I moved my VMware Workstation to another machine and since then neither the vmnet NICs nor any of the VMware network services was working.
With vmware-network –status the status of the virtual NICs and netservices can be checked. I got
Bridge networking on vmnet0 is not running
DHCP service on vmnet1 is not running
Hostonly virtual adapter on vmnet1 is disabled
DHCP service on vmnet8 is not running
NAT service on vmnet8 is not running
Hostonly virtual adapter on vmnet8 is disabled
Some/All of the configured services are not running

as respons. I tried to fix that by  vmware-network –start but got Failed to start some/all services back so I started investigating. The answer to that was a missing kernel mod calles vmnet. A quick modprobe vmnet and again a restart of the service fixed the issue.
