servers VM in the VMworkworkstation are not talking to each other. Cant join to the domain

Hello, I have servers VMs in the VMmware workworkstation v11 that are not talking to each other. They are suppose to be on the same network and should be able to ping each other, join to the domain, etc.

Is it a virtual network adapter? It is currently set to NAT....Should I recreate a new virtual adapter and put all of them on that adapter?

I already tried promoting one member to DC, installing DNS and configuring same DNS for member server and that DC, but it still tells me that it can't find Domain Controller and cant join to the domain. I assigned static IPs to both of them as shown below:

1st server DC, DNS
10.10.10.2
255.255.255.0
10.10.10.1

2nd server member that not able to see DC and join to the domain
10.10.10.3
255.255.255.0
10.10.10.1


Please advise
Thank you

Have you tried

Bridged Networking or Host Only networking.

I've seen a few issues of late with VMware Workstation 11, and weird network communication.

(I've just been writing a new EE Article using VMware Workstation 11, and I've had network issues, and I've needed to do this!)

Try Power Off, the virtual machines, and Shutdown VMware Workstation.

Will try host. Is it possible that Bridged network connection (Connected directly to physical network) could cause problems? We have lab that is using different forest and domain name, but still....since the laptop is join to the production network, I dont want any new DNS or DHCP servers to be visible to the production environment or causing any issues. Let me know if that would be a risk.

You will want to use BRIDGED Networking for Domain Joins!
