VMWare server 2.02 configure virtual network within host
Posted on 2010-11-12
I Currently have a Host server connected to my LAN on a 172 network and I also have a couple Virtual servers running on that host with bridged networks. I need to create a couple more virtual servers on the same host server using the Host only option. The concern I have is that these new host only virtual servers need to be isolated from the LAN 172 network but I still need the virtual network to be on the same 172 ip subnet. First I am concerned that if I change the DHCP for VMnet8 (currently defined with a 192 subnet) to the same 172 network will that cause problems with my existing bridged Virtual servers? Will my new "Host only" Virtual servers connect to the same bridged 172 networks or will they be in their own 172 virtual network? Whatever I do I do not want to disrupt my current bridged Virtual Servers.
