I have HPE ProLiant DL380 8G with four NICs. Installed ESXi6.7, and statically configured first NIC for management access in private subnet, and I have been able remotely access the server via web browser. I have connected the second NIC to a NAT'ed router, that should assign me an IP in subnet, so that future created VMs can reach the Internet but I'm unable to get any IP address. I have created VMs using EVE-NG & CentOS images but both VMs were unable to get any IPs other than loopback address. So, how can I fix this issue of keeping two separate subnets? I appreciate your help. Thanks in advance.

    Normaly, this is no problem. Is the second NIC assigned to the right vSwitch? Please tell us more about your vSwitch configuration. – Tobias Jan 10 at 14:20
  • Yes, I have created new Port Group and second vSwitch (inet & vSwitch1 respectively) and associated two physical adapters to them (vmnic1 & vmnic2) and both of them are up. The only time I was able to get and IP address for vmnic1 is when I removed the configuration for the first subnet from the equation. Thanks. – M Fadlalla Jan 10 at 14:53
  • Did you mean to use public IP addresses that belong to AOL for that subnet? – Michael Hampton Jan 11 at 18:58
