Virtual machines cannot make external contact on an external virtual switch network RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've just created a small test bed for WS 2012. I have three VMs running on it, including one that is the PDC and DNS server. Although I assigned all to a virtual switch network configured for external use, the VMs have no internet access. The base machine can see any other machine on the network, but not the three VMs. All machines are using static address on the same subnet.

    Any suggestions as to how to fix? I have tried two different network cards in case it was a driver issue with no luck.
