Server with two Physical NICs and one virtual RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all. 

    I have a physical server which is hosting a VM serving as DHCP server(Attached to NIC1 and a VirtualNIC for a virtual internal network which other VMs connect to). 

    The server has two physical NICs: 

    1: Connected to external network (external dynamic IP)

    2. Currently not connected 

    I was to be able to connect a physical client to the second NIC and get an IP from the DHCP server. Have tried connecting a switch to NIC2 and set the binding on DHCP server however an IP is given to the physical machine but can't ping anything. Weird thing is I managed somehow to RDP to the physical machine from the internal network from one of the VMs. 

    DNS/PING and all outgoing communication fails. Have tried even to cnfigure the default gateway on NIC2 to be the IP of the Virtual NIC. No joy. 

    I am pretty much stuck - any input would be welcomed.

  • What virtualization product are you using, Virtual Server 2005, Hyper-V, ESXi?  I'm guessing not Virtual Server 2005, which is what this forum is for.

    For the best results you're better off in that forum.
