Hi Gary,

 

I don’t have/use vmware server but I use vmware workstation and this is what I do to make sure that the vms can locate each other:

 

1. Configure VMWare

- Set up VMWare networking to use *only* the NAT/DHCP service (VMNet8)

  disable the other network services

 

2. Configure windows/linux networking  (in host and vms)

 

- Set ip/name in every vm os according to the table bellow.

 

- Add the following to the Windows HOSTS file

(c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts)

- Add the following to the linux HOSTS file

(\etc\hosts)

 

 

Example:

192.168.182.1  sfdemohost

 

192.168.182.100  sfdemo00

192.168.182.101  sfdemo01

192.168.182.102  sfdemo02

192.168.182.103  sfdemo03

192.168.182.104  sfdemo04

192.168.182.105  sfdemo05

192.168.182.106  sfdemo06

 

 

Once you have finished test with nslookup to see is all the machines can reach the others.

 

Then everything should work.

 

Please, let me know if this works for you on VMWServer or if you need more detailed instructions.

 

Regards,

Hey guys,

I am using VMWare Server, and I am not allowed to use bridged networking mode (for virtual machines) in my network. How can I set up VMWare Server so that I can deploy component descriptions to a sfDaemon running on a virtual machine, from a physical machine?

I have tried using NAT but when I try deployment it either fails, or deploys to my physical machine (if its running sfDaemon).

Kind Regards,
Gary
