There is documentation available for version 5 (I am running 4.1 per the title), but following the directions raises the error:
Incompatible device backing specified for device '0'.
upon clicking 'OK' to apply the settings. I don't really know if creating a serial port connection is necessary in this case, so I'm open to other options. All I really need is to
ping the other VM and get a response.
I am new to networking, so the following information may or may not be helpful:
- I have two virtual machines I want to connect, and each are RHEL 5.9.
- They reside on the same vNetwork, but there is no physical switch associated with the vNetwork. There are unfortunately no more physical switches I can use to my knowledge but, if this is indeed the problem, I can see what I can do to get another. Obviously, virtual solutions are 'easier', not to mention cooler.
- I actually lied; I need to connect three machines
C(all RHEL), however
Cshould not be able to contact each other. (If
A<B<C.) Thus, I think any solution connecting two machines should scale to this scenario, but I am new to this game.
If you would like more information, please comment and I'll do my best to provide it. :-)
