Ping - ESX 4 Host to VM NOT ok, VM to ESX Host IS ok?
Posted on 2011-04-27
I look after a small lab environment with a couple of ESX 4.1 Servers. To save on power and space the vCenter Server (Windows 2008 R2) runs as a VM on one of the ESX hosts.
The problem I have is that I can't ping the VM IP from within the ESX host console, yet I can ping the ESX host from within the guest, so there must be some routing issue... Would someone mind helping me troubleshoot this as I'm not too familiar with vmware virtual network switches.
Let me know which commands you'd like me to run and I'll post them on here.
