ok so what am I doing wrong? I was able to get this setup before but not anymore.
I have 4 VMWares running WS2008R2 EE on each of them:
VSAN (joined to domain)
im not able to join NodeA to the domain (or NodeB). I want a static IP and when I add 2 LAN’s – one for “internet” (NAT) and the other for host only – I assign the IP to host only adapter and cannot ping the DC or even join the domain.
so how can I get NodeA and B joined to the domain with their own static IP’s? (192.168.1.50 and 192.168.1.51 is what i want to use)
i also want the ability to be able to assign my own IP address for clustering a service/application
I managed to figure it out. basically, I had to add 2 NAT’s and 2 Host only. for one of the NAT’s I had to set a static IP that I wanted and that worked…. but if it were set on the hostonly, guess what? it wouldnt work at all.
seems like it will only work with the NAT setting on the VMWare network adapter
