Virtual PC Issue

  Asked By: Brandon    Date: Nov 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 796

Apparently, the `real OS' system reached out through the network and
linked with the `virtual' system and then decided to use it's system
for part of the `real' operation.

The `virtual' system has a completely different name.

Any thoughts on this?

Can you give us any more detail? As it is, this sounds like the plot
exposition of a psycho sci-fi movie.

All I know is IT was setting up a Virtual PC to load wss 3.0 and yes
this is scary!!

There is no significant difference between physical and virtual  as far
as WSS3 is concerned, what were the problems you were seeing?

Answer #4    Answered By: Sunny Delacruz     Answered On: Nov 13

As far as I know, a unique IP from our network, a clean install and a
different name for the `server'. Our main site will not come
up....or went down not accessible....

We already have Server running Sharpoint and was working fine until as
stated above....

Does the virtual  have a unique IP address and host name? How was the VM
created - a clean OS install or a copy of an already running physical or
virtual machine?

As far as I know, a unique IP from our network, a clean install and a
different name for the `server'. We have no access to our site on
the other server.

There's either something missing from your description, or you/your
admin are misunderstanding what you are seeing. What you describe isn't
really possible.

I am relaying information as I get it - The IT person is working with
MS to fix this problem - I will let you know what I can later. Thank
you for some areas to look into per my issue  - I was really looking
to see if anyone had experienced this before.

Are they using the same network  card?
