The first two nics connect to the VMNet1 (Host Only) network. These are used for the cluster network. The rest of them connect to the VMnet8 (NAT) network. Check the subnet VMware generated for VMnet8 (NAT) in your virtual network editor. If its not 192.168.1.0 then you will not be able to ping the vsim using the IPs you have assigned. VMware generates the subnet randomly at install time, but you can customize it if needed in the virtual network editor.
