SBS 2008 and NIC setup

Unanswered Question
Oct 16th, 2009


We are migrating from SBS (microsoft small business server) 2003 in which we had dual NIC's (Internal and External) and it worked fine.

We did not realize SBS 2008 was going to accept only one NIC.

We are in the migration process stuck at the Connect to the Internet setup, it simply does not work and we are missing how we are supposed to do this.

Our SBS 2008 is virtualized inside a Vmware Server 2 guest machine.

Our network is setup like this:

INTERNET >> CISCO 6500 >> Cisco C2960G >> SBS 2008 (connected to one NIC which is the internal network).

On the Cisco 6500 config, we have a vlan which has two sets of IP's:

1. 208.XX.XX.1 as gateway configured as a /24

2. as secondary gateway configured as a /24

So we can give the SBS a config of IP, but how is it supposed to connect to the internet? this is what we are missing...

We do not want to add hardware between both, it used to work fine in 2003. What can we do on the SBS or Switch side to make this work please?

Thank You

I have this problem too.
