Problem with LAN in VM guest.

Hi', I've installed a HP-UX 11.31 guest over a 11.23 VM Host (there are other 11iv3 guests previously created).

I've assigned two virtual switches to this guest (the same that are functioning properly in others) and when I tried to configure the network I noticed this:

uredalb2:/#lanadmin -x 1
The link is down. The speed and other link state information
are undefined. The configuration specified for this card is:
Speed = 1000 or 100 or 10 Mbps.
Autonegotiation = On.


Why is it saying that the link is down?? Its a nonsense because its a virtual switch attached to a running interface on the host.

Re: Problem with LAN in VM guest.

Hi, I've removed one of the vswitches from the guest just to try, right now i left only one, but It remains as "link down". This is the output of "netstat -ni":

uredalb2:/#netstat -ni
Name Mtu Network Address Ipkts Ierrs Opkts Oerrs Coll
lan1 1500 10.71.70.0 10.71.70.228 149 0 149 0 0
lo0 32808 127.0.0.0 127.0.0.1 977 0 977 0 0


I've configured an IP address in that lan but it isnt working...

Re: Problem with LAN in VM guest.

Re: Problem with LAN in VM guest.

There are two shared virtual switches in the VM Host. Right now the one assigned to this guest is "APA":

V_F707:/#hpvmnet

Re: Problem with LAN in VM guest.

hence its shared. you have already removed the virtual switch from VM host

can you ping IP from other guest ?

No, I cannot ping from another guest.
