VMware Server Network Issues
Posted on 2011-02-11
Client called me in to setup a VMware Server 2.02 based 2003 R2 server as a second DC. He prebuilt the VM and I'm just joining to the domain and making it a DC (small DFS later).
Anyway, he HAD networking working at his place before he brought the physical box to the site and now, after changing the IP to operate on the current location's network (192.168.1.x (was on 192.168.111.x)) the VM cannot get out of the .1 network. It CAN use the DNS server on the lan and ping the gateway (192.168.1.10 and 192.168.1.1 respectively) but the gateway doesn't seem to want to route traffic from the VM. (The VM NIC is in bridged mode and I've tried NAT mode with no luck)
So, to summarize:
NOTE and to be clear - when pinging google.com from the VM, it DOES resolve - but gets request timed out responses.
Haven't rebooted yet so I'll do that now, but failing that, Any ideas on how to get full internet access back on the VM? (The host works fine; posting from it).
