VMWARE 4.x

two esx 4.x servers the same

virtual network machines switch three nics on vlan 19  10.2.19.x for both machines

Have alot of vm's running on both server no problems ...

Add new linux or windows machine routing is not working out bound correctly.  

1. Internet works
2. Can ping anything on same subnet.
3. Can connect to it from any other subnet .. rdp or web
4. it can not ping any thing outside its gateway
5. on a tracert it goes to gateway then to a firewall 10.2.19.x to 10.2.10.20
trace route to 10.2.9.200  10.2.19.310.2.120....  drop.......
6. The tracerout or pings should be staying on the cisco 4503 and resolving....

*******

Work on another production vm on same box same virtual network switch all works fine in and out.  traceroute to 10.2.7.200  is  10.2.19.3....10.2.7.200   complete  

happens with linix or windows 2008 servers ....

Can you explain the network configuration outside the ESX..ie how the router,firewall etc are set up? If the issue is specific to Linux and Windows server 2008, It would be worth checking the firewall settings of the machines
