Cannot see SBS 2003 Domain controller once it was placed in vmware as a virtual machine.
Posted on 2013-08-31
I have placed the SBS 2003 server into a vmware instance on a spare machine, but it cannot see the network and the host machine (that has been given a static IP corresponding with the sbs 2003 server's AD) cannot ping the sbs2003 that is now running as a vmware virtual machine.
Before I destroy the data on the Dell PowerEdge, I'd like to know that (if all fails this weekend) we can still run the SBS 2003 that we are replacing as a VM in vmware. But, without this basic network connectivity, we cannot?
Any ideas about getting the SBS 2003 VM to act as though it is still on the network and visible just as it was before when it was a physical sever?
