Have a Dell 2950 III Server with two GB NICS in it. Patch cable is in NIC0 and connected to switch.
Running ESXi on the Server, management interface is 192.168.3.30
Can ping the management interface and can run VSphere client to connect to it.
See both of the VM's I created, One is a Domain Controller, The other an Exchange Server
Power up the domain controller, powers up, I log in, go to change adapter settings TCPIP to see what the config looks like...
IP = 192.168.3.31
SN = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.3.1
DNS = 127.0.0.1 (this is the dns server)
I cannot ping the gateway from the server.
I cannot ping the server from the laptop that running the vsphere client.
When I do an IP config I a get a weird reply (see screenshot).
The odd thing is that an hour ago at our office both these servers were up and running, all we did was shut down the vm's, shutdown the host and move it to a building 5 mins away.
Plugged them in.
Started Host, changed gateway on management network to reflect current network.
Started the Domain controller VM ..... BOOOM! that is when the issue started.
Any help is appreciated
