    Hi all,

    Got a bit of an issue with VMWare Workstation or im just having a brain fart!

    I am trying to setup the following to test AD sites and services

    Site A
    Server 1
    IP 192.168.1.10
    Mask 255.255.255.0


    Site B
    Server 2
    IP 192.168.2.10
    Mask 255.255.255.0

    They are both using VMnet1 (Host Only) that is set as 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0

    I know i have a config issue somewhere but can someone please point me so i can get them both to communicate?

    Resolved.

    My home IP range is 10.1.0.x So i have just configured Site A as 10.1.2.x and Site B 10.1.3.x and set them as bridged connection!

    Sorted!!!

    Glad to hear you've sourced out the issue as looking at the original post I couldn't have faulty the IP range and subnet mask settings.

    However, as you clearly stated your router is in the 10.x.x.x range and hence the reason why the 192.x.x.x range wasn't working. Well done:)

    Brilliant, at least you're micking what a production environment would look and act like but in this case on a virtual environment. The concept and how it works is there so that's good.

    What version of VMware workstation are you using?

    Thanks, I,m using Workstation 7.1.3

    Im impressed with it, used to use Vmware Server and that was good but Workstation is better IMO

    Thanks for the feedback dblight, as I too would be ordering VMware workstation 7.1.3 soon to carry out a new lab setup for exchange server 2007 and EXSi 4.1 setup.

    The added advantage with VM Workstation 7.1 is you now also get ThinApp Starter Addition as well :)
