  • Connectivity issue between host and virtual machine

    Hi Frineds,

    For testing purpose I have installed virtual server 2005 on my machine and created a domain contoller on VM.

    Now, My host machine has a ip address 198.168.1.2 (via ISP provided access point inbuit DHCP) and for VM I configured following settings:



    Two virtual nic card
    • One intenal (ip address is 10.1.1.1)
    • Second card connect to external network (got IP fom DHCP and ip address is 192.168.1.4)
    Now I can ping my virtual machine with IP 192.168.1.4 and also from virtual machine I can ping 192.168.1.2 (host machine)

    But when I try to ping VM with ip 10.1.1.1 (VM domain controller) fom host it is not pingable. Kindlt let me know how to resolve this issue

    Have you checked if a firewall is enabled.
    Please remember to award reputation points if you have received good advice.
    I do tend to think 'outside the box' so others may not always share the same views.

      Yes, firewall is already disabled.

        How exactly do you expect the host on the 192.168.X.X range to know how to reach a host in 10.X.X.X range? It does see the 192.168.X.X neighbor, but not the other one... More than that, you defined that NIC as Internal. In the internal VS2005 Help is stated:
        Internal: Connects the virtual machine to a virtual network that is available only to other virtual machines. This type of network is isolated from the external network of the physical computer.
        Why do you need both NICs, anyway?
        And, BTW... I hope you will not add the host to the domain that resides on the VM ...

          I am sorry I am weak in networking but what I want to do is:

          As you said I donot what to add host to domain but yes I want to take rdp (mstsc) of all VM and for that host must able to ping 10.x.x.x Now I think u understood what I exactly want to do.

            Wel...
            Whatever network connection you need between the host and the VM, use the 192.168.X.X addresses... I don't see at the moment why you need the 10.X.X.X virtual NIC
            Why do you need RDP from the host to the VMs? For management? If so, I strongly suggest you use VMRCPlus. It's free and it's a great tool.
