VMWare Help Required
Good Morning Everyone,
a little help please as I have not used VM before at any level, I have downloaded VMWare Server 2.0.2
and setup a Windows 2008 R2 server withe basic roles i.e. DNS\DHCP\AD\File Services it all runs fine with no issues.
I then setup a Windows XP Client and a Windows 2008 R2 Member Server which will be used to run SQL 2012, both the client
and SQL Server have connected to the domain fine and picked up a dhcp address, but neither can connect to the internet.
I have tried the internet on the DC and its fine, I am playing with this at home at thee moment I might add and not at school
so am currently playing with the following IP details on the DC;
IP Address :- 192.168.0.10
Subnet :- 255.255.255.0
Gateway :- 192.168.0.1 (this is my Virgin Media Router)
DNS :- 192.168.0.1
DNS is listening on :- 192.168.0.10
forwarders :- 126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52 which it has resolved
Am I missing something as to why the clients cant connect to the internet, both my xp client and SQL Server are showing up
in DNS, DHCP and AD ???
What does a traceroute to google.com tell you?
You might be better off using VirtualBox (free) or VMware Workstation (not free).
VMware Server is discontinued and hasn't been updated in over 3 years, so you are bound to come across some issues with it.
