I have installed the Oracle Virtual Server, VM Manager, and the PS Templates on one physical box. However, when I try to access 10.x.x.x:8000/ps/signon.html from my laptop I cannot access the server. I get the standard webpage cannot be displayed error.
The Virtual Server has an IP Address of 10.10.1.10
There are two virtual machines. One for the DB and the other for App/Batch and PIA (Weblogic)
When I powered on and configured the db server I gave it 10.10.1.11 as the IP address
When I powered on and configured the App/Batch/Weblogic VM I gave it 10.10.1.12 as the IP Address
Everything installed correctly and all the app servers and processes schedulers started and connected to the DB successfully.
I can ping the 10.10.1.10 successfully. However ,I cannot ping either of the other two addresses from my laptop or even from the Virtual Server console.
What did I do wrong?
Have you check the netmask and default gateway ? Please, be sure about those parameters correspond to the ones of your laptop :
Should I be able to ping the virtual machine IP address from my laptop?
I'm not even able to ping the IP address of the Virtual machine from the actual Oracle VM server itself. There must be something simple I am missing here.
That's rather strange, the installation of template should be relatively straightforward. And yes, the laptop should be able to ping the pia server otherwise you won't have any chance to reach the webserver's login page.
If database and app/batch/pia servers can talk to each other, then it means the net services are properly started. Have you tried from app/batch/pia to run a traceroute to the database server and see what it's going through and do the same from your laptop ? What's the ip address of your laptop - ipconfig ?
It's probably a different subnet issue. For instance, having 10.10.x.x for server could raise such issue if your laptop is under the format 192.168.x.x, they are in different subnets even if they have the same netmask.
OK, I finally figured out what was wrong. When I created the virtual machines I selected the xenbr0 bridge and I should have chosen xenbr1 bridge. There are two NIC interfaces and the second one is the active one. So, I recreated the virtual machines with the correct network bridge and all is well!
Thanks for all your replies!
