Created a dVSwitch added a host and VM and have no internet connection now

I created a dvSwitch added one of my hosts to it and added one of my VM's on that host to it. Now the VM doesn't have an internet connection. The other VM's on the host do not either. Any suggestions? If I ping anything from the VM that is assigned to the port group I get ping transmit failed. If I ping from any other machine it just says destination unreachable.

Please provide some details about the dvSwitch configuration. Do you use VLANs? Maybe a VLAN configured on a port group matches the default VLAN on the physical switch port? How are the uplink ports (on the physical switch) configured?

I figured it out. I wasn't too smart...:) The VM that I added to the port group was set to DHCP and I hadn't added the DHCP server to the port group. Can I have multiple host that are on two different subnets, connected to two different physical switches on the same dvSwitch?

Had to read this last sentence a couple of times Smiley Wink

This should basically work as long as you make sure the proper uplinks are configured for each individual port group.
