This is actually an example from an older configuration which worked well with the above config

I have recently installed the VMware Server distribution on a Kimsufi box since ESXi is unavailable and since then I am unable to get the Failover IP's to work with this box. I have been looking through all the guides and applying different scenarios that others suggested in other posts but still no luck. If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it! The following are the current configs I have setup:

VMware Server:
Failover IP's:,,

VMware Server side:


Ubuntu 10.04 VM with network interface set as "host-only":

auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
# hwaddress ether
post-up /sbin/ip route add dev eth0
post-up /sbin/route add default gw



Rebooted VMware Server and Ubuntu VM as specified in some posts yet nothing. Also do I need to specify the Virtual Mac? Any help resolving this would be greatly appreciated!

*NOTE* It works fine if network interface is set to bridged mode vs host-only in VMware server - is that acceptable?
