Fresh install of Freenas 11U4, 2 new jails with static IP addresses. The jails can ping each other but only one of them can ping the host and neither of them can ping the gateway. Host networking is fine.

Nikola: can you also look at this one? It may be related to the other ticket passed to you this morning.

#5 Updated by Nikola Gigic about 1 year ago

It actually is, I took a look at the log files that I've been provided with and I thought it may have been just a misconfigured Network > General Configuration.
This, tho, suggests it might be a bug in place.
I will investigate further.

I was running on VirtualBox and had the same issue with Bridged Adapter until I allowed Promiscuous Mode (see attached screenshot). I see you are running on VMware, it might have the same issue.

When I allowed Promiscuous Mode, both static and DHCP configurations started working. With DHCP configuration and Promiscuous Mode denied, I was able to see DHCP requests on DHCP server, but offers were apparently dropped by VirtualBox (because jail's adapter ethernet address was different from VirtualBox guest adapter ethernet address) and FreeNAS was not able to receive them.

#10 Updated by Erik - about 1 year ago

Changing the security on the virtual switch from Reject to Accept Promiscuous mode has resolved the issue.

While I don't think security wise its a good idea to allow Promiscuous mode on the entire vmware host, this would not be an issue for me outside of development lab as the final product would be on stand alone hardware.\
I appreciate the time you spent looking into this. Thanks.

We already mention it for VMware in http://doc.freenas.org/11/jails.html#jails-configuration. Will edit slightly to note for Virtualbox as well.
