Are you using any kind of network link aggregation (NIC bonding)?
Not really, the virtual machine has only one virtual NIC, which has a 1:1 relationship with the hardware NIC. The server has 8 NICs, but only those used in the VMs are physically connected to the switch.
You might want to check if the problem occurs when traffic is accessing your default gateway. If the gateway is the problem then perhaps your switch is not configured properly.1 person found this helpful
Check with the network administrators.
Check this post.
Thanks both of you for the answers.
Turns out in the end that in fact our router was grabbing all the private IPs because of some NAT configuration that is needed to communicate with our main office. It seems that if we setup the same IP, but in a different VLAN, it will also work with the proper configuration of our switch.
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
route add default gw 192.168.1.1
worked like a charm (misteriously). I just added it to rc.local, it's unclean but it worked.
Thank you again.
