Can't ping Virtual Server from host or other servers and Virtual Server can't ping anyone else.
Posted on 2008-10-29
We have a Dell poweredge 2950 with Broadcom NIC hosting 4 Virtual Servers. After removing Symantec Endpoint Manager we cannot ping any of the VMs from the host or other servers. The VMs can ping themselves but cannot ping anything else including their host. We have a static IP set up and the host and VMs all use the same subnet mask and default gateway and the same DNS servers. I have tried shutting them down, removing the NIC config and readding it but to no avail. There is only one NIC enabled on the host.
These are all Virtual Server 2005 VMs with the latest hotfixes and service packs. I've checked the services that are running on another host and each of it's VMs and all of the services running are the same as well as all of the NIC settings (except of course they have different IP addresses) including the subnet and the gateway.
I can start the VMs up and log into them just fine from Virtual Server Management Console.
