VBox 3.2.12 - guest intercommunication .. error in reasoning

Postby bthalmayr » 14. Feb 2011, 23:23

Hi experts, can someone please shed some light on the following issue? I guess I have an error in my reasoning.

I do have 2 hosts A/B (V20z Dual Opteron 10GB RAM) each running OpenSolaris 2009.06.

Both are running 3 Solaris Express guests (2 GB RAM, guest additions installed), all configured with bridged networking.

All guests on host A can communicate with each other and also with host A and B (and other 'external' clients).
All guests on host B can communicate with each other and also with host A and B (and other 'external' clients).

However guests on host A can not communicate with guests on host B and vice versa.

Networking config host A:
===================

lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
bge0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2

lo0: flags=2002000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6,VIRTUAL> mtu 8252 index 1
inet6 ::1/128

Networking config host B:
===================
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
bge0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
inet 192.168.1.24 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
vnic0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 4

lo0: flags=2002000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6,VIRTUAL> mtu 8252 index 1
inet6 ::1/128

Networking config guest 1 on host A:
===========================
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000

lo0: flags=2002000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6,VIRTUAL> mtu 8252 index 1
inet6 ::1/128

Networking config guest 1 on host B:
===========================
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000

lo0: flags=2002000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6,VIRTUAL> mtu 8252 index 1
inet6 ::1/128

ping from 192.168.3.23 to 192.168.3.247 works.
ping from 192.168.3.24 to 192.168.3.250 works.
ping from 192.168.3.247 to 192.168.3.250 does NOT work.
ping from 192.168.3.250 to 192.168.3.247 does NOT work.

Where is my mistake?

TIA,
Bernhard

My mistake was that I have not changed the MAC address after importing the image :-(.

Interestingly the 'import' in the same repository did not change the MAC automatically ... this might be an RFE.
