I currently have an esx server ( 3.5 update 3 ) and a virtualcenter server ( version 2.5 ).
I have a 3 guests on my esx host that I have cloned to create a test environment.
I have managed to successfully clone the servers with all their disk but I seem to be having a problem creating a virtual network for them to run in.
I have created a virtual switch with no adapters added to it and I have added the 3 cloned machines to this switch.
I have given the 3 clones 192.168 IP's and added the 3 IP's into the hosts file on each machine but I cannot seem to get connectivity to each other.
does anyone have an answers for me , I know I'm probably missing something important here.
