I started 1 VM and connect a VMNic to it. Everything is fine. I use an external machine (outside VM) to ping it without getting any loss packet.
Then I connect a 2nd VM to the same port group. The ping starts to get loss packet. The loss packet message is from the 2nd VM (although I am pinging the 1st VM).
How could the ping to the first VM ends up getting response from the second VM?
I use static IP for configuration.
Any suggestion what is wrong?
Try to check:
- any duplicate MAC address
- bandwidth utilization
Then post here VM and hypervisor network performance charts (under VM -> performance and under single esxi host -> performance). The things that could be relevant is what's happens when you start 2nd VM... Please capture all of these informations and post here.
