VMWare : How to drop an AD server into an existing environment?
Posted on 2006-11-26
Here's my situation:
I have an AD server on VMWare with an IP of 192.168.2.120. Everything works fine.
Now I'm supposed to demo its functionality in a meeting at a different office.
In order to demo the functionality I'm looking for, my AD VMWare server has to be
able to access the internet. I can't change my IP, and I'm not sure of their IPs in their
environment. So I'm guessing I can change something about the networking settings
in my VMWare to make this work... but how? I've been playing around with it for a
while, but I can't get it to work.
So ideally, I have my laptop with an IP of 192.168.141.x, (able to access the internet)
and I have my AD server running in VMWare on that laptop with an IP of 192.168.2.120
and somehow my AD server can access the internet through my laptop.
But how? NAT? Host Only? ...Voodoo Magic?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
