What i have is a vswitch with 3 VM's connected to it, each VM has 1 virtual nic installed (AMD accelerated nic). the vswitch has 2 physical nics uplinked to give access to the physical network. I tried pinging from my virtual application server to the virtual database server and it pings happily but after a random time just drops. Have you seen this before?
hmm, they complain of slow response times whereas mine actually starts dropping packets full stop. You start the ping and it replies happily the randomly after a while it stops replying?
the ip address for the machine was in use elswhere. I opened the console to login and was greeted by a message informing me that there was an ip conflict
