I installed VMware view on two esx servers on cluster. I have a desktop pool.
I have two network card on the desktops. One is connect to the domain controller(dhcp server) and one to the internet (dhcp server).
There is my issue. If i have connection to the domai and to the internet, i can not connect to the desktop via Devon thin clien. (error - Pool is not available, try again or contact admin)
If I disable Internet connection or unpluge cable from network (internet) or all network cards are connect to the domain, I can connect with thin client to the desktops.
Can you please help with this?
Do you have 2 network cards in the VMs or in your desktop? if they are in the VMs, then, I am not sure why would you need two network cards on the VMs to access the internet. Would it be possible for you to explain your setup - may be with a diagram?
Okay - are you able to ping your view manager server from you thin clients. If so, you should be able to connect to your VMs without a problem -- Also, is your View Manager Server is also VM - how many network cards you have on your View Manager server? Did you try to add a static route on your VMs and see if that resolves the problem: here's how to add a static route on your windows VM.
Manipulates network routing tables.
-f Clears the routing tables of all gateway entries. If this is
used in conjunction with one of the commands, the tables are
cleared prior to running the command.
-p When used with the ADD command, makes a route persistent across
boots of the system. By default, routes are not preserved
when the system is restarted. Ignored for all other commands,
which always affect the appropriate persistent routes. This
option is not supported in Windows 95.
command One of these:
PRINT Prints a route
ADD Adds a route
DELETE Deletes a route
CHANGE Modifies an existing route
destination Specifies the host.
MASK Specifies that the next parameter is the 'netmask' value.
netmask Specifies a subnet mask value for this route entry.
If not specified, it defaults to 255.255.255.255.
gateway Specifies gateway.
interface the interface number for the specified route.
METRIC specifies the metric, ie. cost for the destination.
All symbolic names used for destination are looked up in the network database
file NETWORKS. The symbolic names for gateway are looked up in the host name
database file HOSTS.
If the command is PRINT or DELETE. Destination or gateway can be a wildcard,
(wildcard is specified as a star '*'), or the gateway argument may be omitted.
If Dest contains a * or ?, it is treated as a shell pattern, and only
matching destination routes are printed. The '*' matches any string,
and '?' matches any one char. Examples: 157..1, 157., 127.*, 224.
Invalid MASK generates an error, that is when (DEST & MASK) != DEST.
Example> route ADD 18.104.22.168 MASK 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 IF 1
The route addition failed: The specified mask parameter is invalid. (Destination & Mask) != Destination.
> route PRINT
> route ADD 188.8.131.52 MASK 255.0.0.0 184.108.40.206 METRIC 3 IF 2
destination^ ^mask gateway metric ^
If IF is not given, it tries to find the best interface for a given
> route PRINT
> route PRINT 157* .... Only prints those matching 157*
> route CHANGE 220.127.116.11 MASK 255.0.0.0 18.104.22.168 METRIC 2 IF 2
CHANGE is used to modify gateway and/or metric only.

View Manager Server is VM and I have there two network cards in intranet.
When I logon to view manager server via Thinclient and I see there 2 desktop pool. If Itake one of this, I can not connect to the VMs desktops. I have failure message. Desktop pool is not avalaible, try later or contact administrator.
I am going to setup intranet static IPs.
I setup intranet static IPs and it seems it is working now.
I setup static IP on WindowsXP, where I have some snapshots. When I want create automatic desktop pool with 20 desktops, I have same IP on all desktops and them I must reset all IP.
Is it possible somewhere setup it automatically?
