Vmware servers network conflicting

StratfrordDC asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
We have 2 vmware esxi5.0 servers that are having a network conflict.
I have migrated a virtual server from one physical VM to another using the converter stand alone client. This has an ip address of xxx.xxx.x.206. This server is turned of in the virtual environment.
The two physical servers have different static ip addresses of xxx.xxx.x.214 and xxx.xxx.x.217.
Both are conflicting and when both are turned on one will lose network connectivity.
Also if I leave both turned on after roughly 10 minutes one goes down and the other takes over. 10 minutes later the other goes down and the other takes over.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as i'm a little lost on this one
