I have looked all over in hopes of finding information on how to do this and have come up empty handed I hope someone here can help me
I have VMWare Workstation Version 7 that I am trying to use to setup a lab for the Microsoft 70-680 exams.
I have Server 2008R2 installed and configured as the PDC
I have two Windows 7 Virtual Machines they are named Client1 and Client2
What I want to do is have the two Windows 7 Boxes join the Server 2008 domain.
What I cannot figure out is what IP address I should give the Server 2008 box so that I can still access the internet but still have it be a DHCP Server for the two client VM's (is this possible or do they have to be static?) I have tried configuring a static address for the clients in the VMWare Network Editor but I keep getting an error saying that the IP and Subnet do not match the IP I am setting on client 1 is 192.168.1.71 , the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 to my knowledge this is a correct subnet t a class C address so I have no idea why Im getting the error ???
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Like I said I do not know if I can run the Windows 2008 server as a DHCP server and have the clients get a dynamic IP and join the domain but i would imagine so, unless this is a limitation of VMWare Workstation and I am setting this up completely wrong.
