ESXi network questions
Posted on 2011-10-18
We are getting ready to deploy a Dell T710 with ESXi 5.0 on it. My co-worker set the machine up and then kinda dumped it in my lap. I've got 2 VM's running on it. Both server 08 R2 one will be the DC, File Server, and Print server, the other is basically just going to be running AutoCAD Vault. Right now I've got the server hooked into a single nic, the VM's can get on the internet but they can't seem to ping or talk to any other machines on our network. And nothing else can talk to them. The DC server was joined to our domain at our corporate office before it was brought to the site where it will be used. The Host machine has a static IP address that can be pinged and we can get to it with the vsphere client software. However if you try to RDP to the VM server it wont go. And you can't ping them. I also noticed that they are only running at 100mb and not at Gig speeds like they should be. I checked the cables and the port it was plugged into and it is all good. Anyone have any ideas?
