Vmware Vswitch communication issue over seperate ESX servers
Posted on 2009-12-17
Have just installed a VMware setup. I have two ESX servers linked to an MSA with HA. I have a switch called Virtual Machine network with a server 2008 running on the live network witout issue.
I have created a test switch and added two virtual machines to this, XP-Test and Server-Test. The XP machine is currently hosted on the ESX1 and the Server-Test is hosted on the ESX2. Both machines have static IP's in the same range but can not see each other. If another XP machine is hoste on the ESX1 server the machines can see ach other.
In the Vcenter when looking under Networking and the Test switch both machines are listed.
any ideas would be great as i am quite new to this, thanks in advance.
