I am new to VM and thought I would try it out.

  Right now I have the host machine with IP
10.0.3.14
255.255.255.192
10.0.3.1

  The VM server is connected via "Bridged" and the ip for it is
10.0.3.40
255.255.255.192
10.0.3.1

  The problem I am having is that I am unable to ping any server nor can I ping the VM server from any server.  I am trying to join the domain and keep getting the "Domain Controller could not be contacted."  

  Any clues?

what vm software are you running and what version is it. what is the os of the host and what os is the guest? lets start there. also include any options check when you setup the bridged connection.

VM Server 2.0.1

Host os is Win2k3
VM os is Win2k3

  Options checked with bridged connections:

xConnected
xConnect at power on

Mac Address generated by the host

  In the Manage Virtual Networks i have everything set as default.

I changed the config on the MANAGE VIRTUAL NETWORKS /HOST VIRTUAL NETWORK MAPPINGS from default to the nic that I wanted the adapter to connect to.  All is good.  Thanks,
