I need to create a self-contained windows LAN on a couple of VMs.
I have a couple of hyper-v VMs running Windows 2008r2 on a Win8 host.
Both VMs are running off the same virtual switch which is attached to the Ethernet port of the host laptop.
Here's what I've done so far:
- allocated a fixed IP address to VM1
- promoted VM1 to be a domain controller using dcpromo.
- set the primary dns of VM2 to IP address of VM1
- from VM2 joined the domain created on VM1
When I run nslookup from VM2 it is able to resolve to VM1. However, when I try the reverse from VM1 I get the message:"localhost can't find 2008r2server2: Non-existent domain"
Could anyone please help troubleshoot?
