    Re: Virtual XP machines all of a sudden are unreachable on the network

    has been resolved. GP for Firewall wasn’t properly working. Had to redo.
    Never figured out what caused it… if someone has ideas I’d love to know…

    So the only issue now is RDP access to the XP VMs?

    Can you verify a few things;

    Is the Hyper-V server Domain joined
    Are the Windows XP VMs Domain joined
    Are there any recent updates reported in the event viewer or via Add/Remove Programs on the server and VMs.
    Have you added another NIC to one of the XP VMs and tested?
    Have you joined them to another Virtual Switch to test?
    Do you want the Firewall Off or On? Have you tested either way?

    Is the Hyper-V server Domain joined – Yes
    Are the Windows XP VMs Domain joined – Yes
    Are there any recent updates reported in the event viewer or via Add/Remove Programs on the server and VMs. – Yes ( currently trying to find out if one of the last updates caused it – last update was 15th of May)
    Have you added another NIC to one of the XP VMs and tested? – No
    Have you joined them to another Virtual Switch to test? – Not yet – but then if it was Hyper-V issue that would affect the DC for that site and the web server on the same Hyper_V no?
    Do you want the Firewall Off or On? Have you tested either way? Firewall has to be on… Have not tested the off but I can clearly see that the RDC is unchecked and it’s GPO controlled…

    Another thing we found that it is affecting other XP machines – not only Virtuals … so it’s not a Hyper-V topic it’s XP topic

    Check the ip configuration on the XP VM’s to make sure it’s valid.

    Make sure that the XP VM’s are connected to the correct virtual switch.

    The settings have not changed since the time that everything was working. I’ve checked the IPs just in case and it’s all as per usual… After the restart of the server the PING works on all of the systems but the RD is disabled in the firewall which is the problem… I went through the GPOs to check and nothing changed since when everything was working… Any other ideas?

    Re: Virtual XP machines all of a sudden are unreachable on the network

    UPDATE:
    after server restart the machines ping fine now but still unable to connect through RD … and another discovery – Remote Desktop is unchecked in the firewall settings that is controller through GPO … BUT I didn’t make any changes at all lately! Not since I took over the position about 4 months ago! … :?::?::?::?::?::?::?: completely lost now…
    AND apparently this little feature is on all the Windows XP machines on the network ….
