I have a VMWare ESXi cluster running many Windows and Linux VMs perfectly. I have installed the Turnkey Linux Redmine appliance, and am having a lot of trouble getting the networking to work properly.
The appliance VM is set up to use VLAN12, which is the same VLAN as my PC, unfortunately when the VM tries to ping anything outside itself, I get a "destination host unreachable". This is the same when I try to ping the VM from my PC.
eth0 Link enap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:56:8b:5a:06 inet addr:10.7.12.234 Bcast:10.7.12.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr:fe80::250:56ff:fe8b:5a06/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 ...

My PC's (Windows) ipconfig output
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::8d03:24a4:4378:a203%13 IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.7.12.23 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.7.12.1
I've read a lot of people having issues with Ubuntu (which I believe is what the appliance is based on), VMware and the network problem but the solution tends to be "switch to bridged mode." I don't have those options in VMWare - just the VLAN options.
Can anyone shed any light on this or point me in the right direction?
