VMware guest cannot browse shares on Host system

Hi,

I have VMware server 1.06 installed on a Windows 2003 Host - this host is also running Backup Exec. The Guest OS is a Windows 2000 SP4 server.

The backups were failing when connecting to the Guest. On troubleshooting, I found that the Guest and the Host are unable to browse to their defined shares. When attempting to connect to a share on the Guest from the Host or vice versa, the server attempts to connect but then timesout. I am able to browse without issues to the shares on all the other servers from the Guest or the Host without issues.

The Guest OS was migrated to the host from another hardware using VMWare convertor. I am able to resolve DNS between the Guest and Host and I have the VMWare tools installed.

Help, please!!
