Moved Virtual Drive to new machine and now the network will not connect
Posted on 2008-06-19
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,
