can't ping a new vm machine

Hi - I have created a VM machine and it was working fine. The VM was setup on one machine and the files were stored on another machine. Due to an error between the host and datastore machine I had to move the files to the same machine that the VM was setup on.

Now that I have brought the machine up the host can ping the new vm and visa versa but where the problem comes in the rest of the network can't ping the VM but the vm can ping the rest of the network.

I have confirmed that vm is picking up a DHCP ip address and when you ping fomr another machine it picks up the ip address but doesn't get a reply.  I have also checked the firewall is off

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,

You have mentioned that some error occured between the VM and the datastore when it was intially setup and so you had to move the VM files to the host itself on which it was running . What was the error ? We could look into investigating that.

the problem was with host machine where it lost connection to the datastore. Since the move it hasn't happened agian.

I have even tried creating a new machine to see if one of the files got corrupt along the way but the new vm has the same issue
