please format your post better next time. then it is easier for us to read it. and please give us more information about your network (topology) and what tests you have already done (e.g. can you ping your default gateway etc.) –  Raffael Luthiger Feb 16 '11 at 22:18
Can you ping something on the local network? Are you sure you DG can do DNS? –  Vick Vega Feb 16 '11 at 22:22
apologize about the formatting - i thought seperating the code this way would actually help , yes i can ping my default GW, and the host ESXi –  kamal Feb 16 '11 at 22:27
