I was given 3 VMserver and am trying to install the CA nimsoft tools on one of the VMserver, during the installation i had to inititialize with database server. where i had installed SQL server 2008 express on 1 of the 3 vmserver earlier. But no matter what authentication i used, it always show Network I/o Error or can't find 192.168.*.*. So i did a ping to the hostname of that vmserver, it gave me another Mac address and IP address. SO i did a check on all 3 server hostname and their hostname are "WIN2008". Could the problem lies on the hostname?
