Services locked out

Hi guys

I have a client having some major issues with connectivity,

I have had another company installing some new software that uses SQL for my client and since then things have gone from bad to worse.

Here is what we have.

running eSXI 5
2 x servers running Windows Server 2008 R2.

Server2 is working fine.

Server1 is the issue.

Server1 runs
and SQL

Yes I know they should be separate, Anyhow.

I can access the shared data located Server1 from Server 2
I can ping Server1
I can RDP to the server1  on the internal network.

I can not access RDP externally.
I can not access the OWA at all.
I have no exchange connectivity.

My firewall is on.

any VLANs configured, maybe also the firewall has been configured to deny access to those services
PowersMackayAuthor Commented:
I don't have any VLAN's that I am aware of.
I thought the same thing about the firewall however even upon turning it off no joy.
PowersMackayAuthor Commented:
Something I have notcied that I don't know how to remove is

when I run ipconfig

I get two gateway address and the real one

I am thinking this is the cause of my issue
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

do you have static IP or use DHCP?!
PowersMackayAuthor Commented:
a Static IP
PowersMackayAuthor Commented:
I did try to change it to DHCP. I get another IP however the same issue with then
BusbarSolutions ArchitectCommented:
when you set the IP manually you enter the GW IP right ?! are you sure that it is on the same subnet
PowersMackayAuthor Commented:
The subnet is correct yes.

I disabled the first LAN and then setup the same settings in the second adapter without an issue no more

BOOM every thing is back up YAY!!!!!!!
