I virtualize Ubuntu server 17.10 with VMWare Workstation Pro.
The network interface looks as follow:

enter image description here

Then, I try to set a static ip address:

enter image description here

Save the configuration, reboot the vm, but still got the same ip address like the first image. Ubuntu does not apply the static ip address.
What am I doing wrong?

What I noticed is, that the intefaces file has no entries.
