Q: Why can't I get my servers to talk to each other when I attempt to add a standalone computer virtual machine (VM) to my domain VM in VirtualBox?
A: Check the following settings if you are having this problem.
- Are your VMs' network adapters set to host-only?
- Do all your VMs have the correct IP address?
- Do all your VMs have the default gateway set to the same IP address of the host-only adapter in your domain controller VM?
- Is your DHCP server set up to manage the same IP address range of the IP address you are attempting to manually enter into your standalone server's VM?
