I have set up my two nodes with the private and public interface. But the validation test fails. From node A i cannpt ping the private interface of Server B and vice versa. These are two vmware servers.

Any ideas ?

ESX(i)?  Workstation?  Server????  which vmware solution are you using and are the two VM's on the same host or separate?  what does you host networking config look like?  Have you read the MSCS guide for ESX(i)?  http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere4/r41/vsp_41_mscs.pdf

yeah , i read the paper  . it doesnt really say much other than create a "private" adapter and then a "public" adapter.

my private subnet is 10.4.2. 106  - 10.4.2.107
default gw for both is 10.4.2.1
both of them can ping the gw , but .106 cannot ping .107

the public adapters work ok. they send and receive traffic.

typically, folks create a 2nd vswitch for the private network.  You can probably get away with only one but it is only for communication between the nodes so a gateway isn't defined or needed.  If you go to a multi-host or across-hosts cluster, then you need to make sure that the second vswitch's have uplinks but for cluster-in-a-box you don't need one.

Your public NIC's are using IP's on a different subnet???  Are you using vlan's at all?  post a screenshot of your host network config, if you can

What are the virtual machine networks that node 1 and node2 are connecte to?

Are the host servers physically connected to both these networks?
