    adding a virtual machine to a virtual server!

    hi guys!

    right having had/having a right problem today!

    we are looking into server 2008! so i have installed virtual pc, then a virtual XP client then a vista Client and finally server 2008....

    mite be dumb here but how can i add them to the domain on server 2008? everytime i try comes up with domain not reachable? domain is set up correctly has a ip address has dhcp set up?

    is there anything extra i can do?

    Cheers guys!

    You need to play in the virtual nic settings on the host machine. I can remember of the top of my head what to do though.

    Have you checked the clients are actually receiving an IP address? The most likely cause will also be a a problem with DNS as well. This could be the client settings or the server DNS.

    Just set all of the Network options in virtual pc to "local only" , then give the server a static IP and activate DHCP on it if you want.

    The virtual machines will all then get DHCP and DNS from the server 2008 box and you can join them to each other that way.
