MS Virtual Server 2005 host network problem

549 Views
Last Modified: 2013-11-15
Hello,

I have virtual server 2005 installed on one of my servers.   When I start the virtual machine, the host operating system gets knocked off of the network.  The virtual machine gets on the network just fine, but the host is inaccessable.  The virtual machine and the host do have two different MAC addresses.  As soon as I turn the virtual machine off, the host is back on the network.

Thanks

Note:  You will note that there is a second network adapter with no dns info.  As a temp workaround, I bound the virtual servers to this adapter and don't publish it in the dns as it is "offline" when the virtual servers are on.

thanks
sorry for late response and not being clear in my first post.
was above information taken from within virutal box? what I asked is the same info from host /w and /wo virtual server running.
I have the ***EXACT*** same problem on a Win2003 Ent x64 machine I have running Virtual Server 2005 R2.  I've setup dozens of VS2005 machines before but this is a first.

If it helps any, I did a route print with & without the virtual server running and they're exactly the same.
