VM to Parent Connectivity

Occasional Contributor

I just installed a VM on a WinSrv 2019 which is a host also for DNS and AD. It has a dynamic IP address with Internet connectivity. However, it can't ping the parent although it can ping other systems on the parent's subnet. Researching, I found that the VM switch was using the same address as the parent. Thinking that it was the problem, I separated the server and switch to different subnet addresses. That didn't resolve the problem. Is there another setting needed to enable the connection? I want to add the VM to the domain.

Disabling the "virtual LAN identification" (VLAN ID) property of the virtual switch allowed the connection. However, you must continue using a dynamic IP address for the VM.
