I've reloaded a Server that I inherited because we were locked out of the Server Admin account as well as the Vmware host.
I loaded WIndows Server 2008 R2 as the host and then created a virtual Server 2008 R2 in hypervisor.
I've done all the updates but have now run into a bit of trouble with configuring it.
When I went to Add DHCP as a role, it complained that the LAN wasn't set to static. I set it to static, but then it killed the internet in the VM.
This is a Dell Server T310 with 2 NIC Ports.
The Router is 192.168.0.1.
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
I set the host as 192.168.1.11 on LAN Port #1
I've got the VM using LAN Port #2. If I leave it on DHCP, the internet works, when I set it static, it stops.
I set it as 192.168.0.111 static. with 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.0.1(router) as the gateway. I've tried with DNS as auto and with DNS as 192.168.0.1 (router)
How can I get a static IP Address to work without breaking internet access?
