I set up a new Microsoft virtual server with all the software I needed. I shut down the Virtual server and made a backup of the vhd file. I moved this file to another virtual machine and created a new virtual server and connected my existing vhd. It all booted ok but it will not let me connect to the network. It will not receive an address from DHCP. I manually set a static Ip address and am able to ping other addresses on the network, but it will not talk to the network. I cannot use Internet explorer or map any drives. I cannot see anything on the network. I thought the purpose of virtual server was the portability of it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thank You

The problem was not specific to attaching a new vhd. I created a new Virtual Drive from scratch and had the same problem. The problem seamed to be with the host Server. I made sure it was registered with DNS and ran repair on the network card. It apears that maybey NIC one and two get reported in reverse on the Virtual Server. On the Host Server it is listed as Nic 1 that I had one cable pluged into, but I need to connect to NIC 2 on the Virtual server to get it to work.
