Vsphere within VMware Workstation 7 Part 1 from Richard Vimeo on Vimeo.
Great walkthru - I've been using Part 1 to set up my own test lab - and I'm running into a spot of bother. I've gotten W2k3 and ESX1 up and configured as in your video, but I am unable to ping one from the other. I have them all on the same LAN segment, I have them with the same IPs as in the video (10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.10 ) but... no love.Any ideas?I was using workstation 7.1 beta and tried going to workstation 7.0, same thing.
Check to see if you are getting a layer 2 connection (use arp -a on windows) if you arent check that they are mapped correctly. Use the right-click disconnect option within vmware to disconnec the nic, then refresh the status of the vm to check.If you are getting a mac address then its a layer 3 problem look for firewall etc getting in the way.You may also want to try a broadcast ping from the esx box.
Thanks for your ideas - I did figure out the problem - I run workstation on a linux host. To be able to do host only lan segments, it appears you need to run workstation as root.After that I'm now starting Part 3 today -thanks again, your demos / tutorials are excellent!
