BESR restored virtual images, trying to get them to talk on internal ip range 10.0.0.0
Posted on 2008-10-09
I have used Symantec BESR to create images of my company's servers which i have then converted to Vmware server compatible virtual images. The idea being to create a cheap disaster recovery solution.
The "real" servers currently have static IP addresses in the 10.0.0.0 range and run a DHCP and DNS server on this range as well as running Active Directory, Exchange 2003 & SQL server.
I need to get each server to be able to ping each other and also i'd like to be able to add machines to the domain as well and access the internet (in essence replicating all functions of the existing servers)
When i try to reconfigure the Vmware networking interface and add the 10.0.0.0 range into the DHCP it doesn't seem to work. It either throws up an error stating error code 0 or accepts the change but the servers can't ping.
My PC which is running the Vmware server is currently running an IP range of 172.168.0.x which is used for local networking as well as the internet.
Is the above possible using Vmware Server (free) 1.07 ?
Any assistance greately appreciated
