virbr0 to eth0


I have 2 virtual machines of RHEL 7 installed on VMware. But the Ethernet card by default is virbr0. When i run both the machines simultaneously, IP address of both the machine shows same address when i run command ifconfig.
I want to switch to eth0 card.

Very likely you want to switch VMware to using a bridge to eth0...

Unless I'm misunderstanding your question (no question mark to identify that for sure).

virbr0 is ethernet bridge on the host.. you can change the IP of VMs from inside the VM.

Only if VMware has identified it as a bridge. Otherwise it is usually a NAT device that blocks access from outside the VM (well, other than the system hosting the VM).
