ESXi Host-Only vSwitch
Posted on 2011-09-29
We have an ESXi 4.1 server that we created a new vSwitch on. We want this vSwitch to be for a host only network. No physical adapters have been added to this vSwitch. We have three machines that we have added NICs tied to this new vSwitch and assigned static IPs to each. We are using the 192.168.192.xxx/24 IPs. We are not able to communicate via ping, unc path, or any other method between the machines. Two of the machines are running Server 2008 Standard x64 with the Windows Firewall Disabled. The other machine is running Windows 7 Pro x64 with Windows firewall disabled.
We need to get a host-only network set up for a virtual lab. Is there something that I am mis-configuring or something that I am just missing?
