I recently installed my first VMware ESXi (4.1) server. Things have gone smoothly in my testing but I have run into one annoying problem:
None of the virtual machines that are running on this ESXi box properly report themselves to the our local DNS server. They appear able to pull an address and DNS info from the DHCP server however but when it comes to reporting their FQDNs to the DNS server, nothing.
Is it something to do with the virtual switch that ESXi runs? Right now the VMs just pull an address on the same subnet as the rest of the servers and I would like to keep it that way if possible. I wonder if the only way to get this to work is to put my VMs on a different subnet and set up routing between them.
What would you guys do?
