Apologies if this has been asked before - I searched and came up with nothing. Also, apologies in advance as networking is probably one of my weaker skills.
I’m trying to keep our development environment separate on VMs to avoid conflicts (a certain competitor has software that is just a nightmare to have running on the bare machine with other things), but I can’t seem to communicate to the groov. I can’t even ping the controller. I get “destination host unreachable.”
This is my setup:
VMware Workstation 15pro. I have my network settings set to bridged (I’ve tried NAT and host-only as well to no avail). I’ve set my IP to static and matched the network identifier and subnet (for example if the controller is 169.254.7.79 w subnet mask 255.255.0.0 and the VM to 169.254.7.90 with the same subnet mask). Also, I’m working off ETH0.
What am I doing incorrectly here? Any and all help would be appreciated.
