Hey EE! I have three VM hosts that several Windows servers are balanced on. One of the datastores was near full so I shutdown one of the virtual servers (for some reason, we didn't purchase the vmotion license). After shutting it down, I moved the vm server using vCenter from host 1 to host 2. There were no errors during this move and the server came right up after the move.
However, the server now shows that it is connected to an "unidentified network" and can't be reached via RDP or by ping. I did the following with no luck:
verified the IP was correct
disabled and re-enabled the network card on the vm
uninstalled and re-installed the nic on the vm
unchecked the boxes "connected" and "connect at power on"
checked the boxes after the server was restarted
I restarted the server after performing each step. I'm at a loss as to how to proceed. The other Windows servers that sit on that host are having none of these problems. Suggestions (vmware 5.1)?
