Microsft Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 no networking LAN/WAN.

I recently installing Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 on my host machine running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition R2 SP2 x64. I then launched two virtual machines off it one being Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition x86 and the other being Windows XP Professional x86. The Problem is that I can't seem to have them access the outside network. I have added my physical network adapter to them and I still can't get outbound access. Another thing I have found strange is that they are supposably on the same virtual network but they can't ping each other, they just timeout. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

You also need to configure the IP address settings within the guest O/S installations, as per any normal install of Windows.

What IP addresses, subnets and gateways are the guests using?

I have a virtual DHCP running which they obtain their IP from.

Network Address: 10.137.0.0
Network Mask: 255.255.0.0
Starting IP Address: 10.137.0.16
Ending IP Address: 10.137.0.254
Virtual DHCP Server Address: 10.137.0.1
Default gateway address: N/A

Ok, but what IP addresses do the servers show when you use IPCONFIG /all on each of them?

Just a thought -- you mentioned in your post: "I have added my physical network adapter to them".  However, please note that inside a VM, you should NOT use the network card driver for the physical network card, but rather one that is suitable for the virtual NIC provided.  

On MS VirtualPC, this would be a DC21x4, which I learned the hard way trying to configure both a NetWare Server and a DOS client.  I assume that VirtualServer uses the same virtual NIC.

Finally fixed it by keeping the virtual network adapter and using my own DHCP server's IP lease settings.
