I'm running VMware Workstation 11 in my home lab and have created two Server 2008 r2 boxes. I created a vlan set up for NAT and hoping to configure it to use a private network (10.1.1.0 255.255.255.0). I installed AD DS and promoted the first server 2008 r2 box to be my domain controller and gave it a static IPv4 :
Default Gateway 10.1.1.1
Primary DNS 10.1.1.2
I've set the VMs network adapter to use the vlan for this network (10.1.1.0 - 10.1.1.254) but I am having connectivity issues. I can ping these internal addresses but cannot ping to any external addresses, i.e. google.com or 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11. I've worked with domain controllers, active directory and servers before but this is the first time I'm trying to set up a new DC and configure a private network/vlan; please help. I've attached screenshots to show my IPv4 configurations and my vlan configuration.
