Windows 2003 VM refuses to join Network

Hi!  I am facing a problem with my BlackBerry server that running on a Windows 2003 VM (Hyper-V).
1.  I did some restores sometimes back and I find now that I have many folder with the same VM that only one is live and working.  Then I decided to delete the old unused folder that contain the same VM data but very old data, and only keep the one containing the live data.   I stopped the live VM before deleting the olds,  just to avoid any conflict.

2. After deleting the old VMs (Files but not the folders that refused to be deleted), I started the live VM and it is up and running.  Unfortunately, the LAN part doesn't work anymore.  THe IP address is there, but I cannot reach any computer in the LAN and no other computer cannot reach my VM.  Of course my BlackBerry then doesn't work

3. I tried restoring the VM from a one week old backup in a New folder and start, but still the LAN still doesn't work.

Grateful if you could assist in gettign the LAN to work.

Regards

Check the VM configuration dealing with network to make sure the network is bridged I.e. Getting an IP from the LAN vs being natted by the host.

Do you have backups that include the files/folders you deleted?
Restoring them...


For me, if OS VM files that I believe are not part of a running VM are being blocked from deletion as being I use, I would look at those folders and the VM to make sure it is not the basis for the running VM.

Thank you very much.  In fact, restoring VM helped to get access to the LAN, but the DOMINO part doesn't work.  Replication is giving too many errors.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

The port 80 issue points to another service is bound to the same IP and port.  Using host headers could be a way to address it.  Check the configuration on what IP it is trying to use.

The duplicate entry error I am not sufficiently familiar with.
