I have an issue where installing VMWare Wokstation breaks DNS resolution when using NetConnect. When the problem occurs I still have full IP connectivity and can even telnet onto port 53 on my DNS server; the problem seems limited to name resolution. This includes both internal and external name resolution. Uninstalling VMWARE resolves the issue.
Unfortunately there are a few variables here so not 100% sure on who's to blame. This version of VMWARE worked on IVE version 5.5, but we upgraded to 6.0R3.1 on the 2nd of Feb and Microsoft patch Tuesday happened 10 days later. Vista SP1 was installed after the problem occurred so is not the cause.
Anyone having similar issues or running something similar where it works?
Vista Enterprise SP1
VMware Workstation 6.0.2 build-59824
SA4000 running 6.0R3.1 (build 12507)
Netconnect profile capturing all traffic and supplying internal DNS server info
so does the dns resolution break inside the vmware session or the host os?
The problem is on the host. |It is a virgin VMWare install - nothing configured.
