This should be fixed in the upcoming version of the vmware probe, meaning any new GA version after 21/Aug/2018.
A fix can be provided upon request by contacting CA Support and requesting the hotfix for defect DE369155
Once the fix is installed the following key should be created under the setup
section of vmware.cfg file or via probe Raw Configure:
use_guest_ip_for_vms_if_guest_nic_info_not_set = true
