Hi,

I have a really strange problem.
I have just converted a physical system to a virtual machine.
After this conversion I can successfully start the machine without any problems EXCEPT I can't ping any system in the same subnet, I can however ping everything behind the router...

More detail information will be better :
- Host and Virtual Operating System ?
- Virtual Ethernet Mode (Bridging or Host Only, etc) ?
- What do you mean by "behind the router", where is your host machine located in the network structure ?
- What is the role of your virtual machine/host machine

Host: Microsoft Windows 2003 SP2
Virtual OS (ESX 3.5)
Virtual Ethernet Mode Bridging (in think, every host is using the same VMnic's)
On this ESX server I have 4 hosts running without any problems, the 5th one (the new one) can only ping to the internet or behind the router.  (other subnets connected via Lan-Lan VPN)
The IP adress of 5th the server is aquired via DHCP, and is in the range of the subnet 192.168.28.x, the router is on ipaddress 192.168.28.254.
I can't ping the firewall from this 5th server, but I can ping the internet, the other servers can ping the firewall and each other...
