VMWare network setup issues.
Posted on 2007-10-15
I currently have a MS Server 2003 host with a Server 2003 VMware vm running as a guest. I have enabled the second nic on the host. Using the Virtual network editor I have enabeld VMnet2 as bridge with the second hardware nic. I have dissabeld the VMNet1 and 8 on the host side. I have the hosts second nic set at DHCP and the VM set as a static address. I am running into a problem that DNS is picking up the vm static address and showing it as the host machines second address. This causes a problem because DNS resolves the hosts name to the vm's ip and when I remote desktop I get the vm and not the host. I clear the dns entry for this, but it seems to come back. I can access the vm over the network with no problmes, but the shares on the host for some are not available because of this dns entry that keeps poping up. Any ideas on what I can do to eliminate this problem? Thanks.
