Need help creating test environment with VMWare Workstation.
Posted on 2009-04-14
So I am studying to get my MCSE and am trying to apply some of the concepts I read about. I want to create a test environment using VMWare workstation to create two seperate Active Directory forests and establish a forest trust. I have spent a good two days trying to figure this out and numerous headaches later I have to ask for help.
I have one forest using the custom network adapter VMnet2 and the other forest using VMnet3. My question is...how do I establish a connection between them so I can create a trust? I have tried using a RRAS in a separate VM (it had two NICs, one with an IP address from VMnet2 and the other from VMnet3) but for the life of me I cannot figure it out.
I understand this is not a "just click this button" sort of question. I just need some direction to a good resource or any sort of advice as to what I am doing wrong or if I should just persue a career in the fast food business. ;-)
Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.
