vmworkstation 10 bridged Card no DNS
Posted on 2014-11-03
I have added a NIC to my workstation and configured it for VMWARE. ie, everything but vmware protocol is unchecked. I assigned VMNic 2 to this card and applied it to my workstation(s). It pulls from DHCP and I can resolve by IP address inside and outside, but No resolution via DNS. I can ping my DNS server IP and I've put in different DNS servers (188.8.131.52), but no worky. I can add an entry to my hosts file and it DOES work. But nothing I do with DNS allows resolution. I'm only using IPV4.
I thought maybe the driver was corrupted so I removed and reinstalled. Same thing. If I configure the nic as a normal nic, it will connect to the network, pull an IP and resolves fine. Reconfigure for vmware and no resolution.
Any thoughts please?
