Reg: Communication problem between Host(windows vista) and Vmware installed Guest system(Solaris)
Posted on 2008-06-25
I am a novice in UNIX,I have installed Solaris 10 Guest O.S through VMware. Installation was succesfull but i had a problem where i was'nt able to ping my host from my SOLARIS O.S. I obsereved that there were 2 virtual adapters local area connection2 (for vmxnet1)and 3(vmxnet8) having DHCP ip addresses as 192.168.41.1 and 192.168.21.1 shown in my host O.S(vista). My host system is able to ping those addreses succesfully but same is not the case with Guest O.S.I have tried using Host only and NAT in type of connectivityu but was not able to ping. I have also assigned ip add 192.168.21.2 to the vmxnet0 interface as they are in the same subnet ,i was expecting connectivity but I guess i am missing few more things.
Any Recommendations.... Also can you please tell how to confugure vmxnet1 ,this is because there is no interface by name vmxnet1 in Solaris. dladm show-link show vmxnet0 as the only interface available.
but i see vmxnet1 through 9 under custom section in the available types of network connectivities.
