Post by z12586 » Aug 17, 2016 8:46 am

Hi, all

I have this VL set up,

Datastore:SATA Datastore 1

Appliance:
Name:Virtual_Lab_1
Pool name:Virtual Lab 1

Production network name:VM Network
IP: 192.168.210.220
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.210.1

DNS:
Preferred:192.168.210.94
Alternate:...

Network configuration type:advanced single-host

Network options:
Isolated network: Virtual Lab 1 VM Network
Masquerade IP: 192.168.211.0
Appliance IP: 192.168.210.1
DHCP: enabled

Network mapping:
VM Network --> Virtual Lab 1 VM Network

Static mapping:
192.168.210.230 --> 192.168.210.226

Is there any firewall enabled inside the guest (for example, Windows firewall could block pings from public networks)?

Thanks, I have turn off all the firewalls.
Now I am able to ping through the static mapping (192.168.210.230 --> 192.168.210.226)
But still can not ping through 192.168.211.230.

Are you pinging from the Veeam B&R server? By default, routing rules are added on the backup server only, if you want to be able to reach them from other machines in production network, you need to configure routing for that.

Yes, I am pinging from the Veeam B&R server, but still failed.

Also, can explain how to "configure routing"?

Does it matter if the observed range of the VM network adapter is from 192.168.210.1 - 192.168.210.254?

You need to ensure that masquerade addresses are routed to the appliance (since only appliance knows where to forward these requests further in the isolated network).
