Is there anything about virtual machines / the ESXi that would block me from being able to mount a Windows 2019 Server VM's share folder from a Redhat VM? I can easily access the folder from a windows 10 VM but I just can't seem to access it with my redhat machine. I can ping it fine and have been trying all kinds of stuff from what I could find online but it still doesn't work. I wanted to make sure that VMWare/ESXi should be transparent to what I'm trying to do.
Hello, hope you are doing fine
If you can ping it means vSphere networking features are doing their trick so it's working.
Maybe there is a firewall in the middle (a physical firewall, windows firewall or redhat IPtables) blocking the share.
Just 2 questions?
Are you pinging via IP? Have you checked DNS?
Do you have NSX?
Looking forward to hearing from you
