I currently have a server that is running vSphere 5 (ESXi). My management interface (VMKernel) has an address of 220.127.116.11 and the gateway on that one is 18.104.22.168. It appears to be set up fine and I can manage the server over that IP.
The problem comes when I set up VMs on the same vSwitch. It's pretty much a default configuration. My host has given me a small block of IPs from another subnet and I'm trying to utilize them in my VM, with no luck:
IP 22.214.171.124 Netmask 255.255.255.255 Gateway 126.96.36.199
My host told me to set the gateway to 188.8.131.52. Is that correct? Either way, when I add those settings to my Windows Server 2008 VM, it cannot route out to the Internet.
If someone could point me towards where I am going wrong, I would really appreciate it.
