ESXi won't communicate to vSphere

  1. Now, I work here at the school as a Work Study. The SST here and I have made an ESXi server to be linked to vSphere on a seperate computer. First we were having Network problems with the two Virtual Machines I had set up (Windows 8 and Server 2012). One day the server got shut down the wrong way (via button at front of computer) and now I can ping the router and get a response, but I ping the server and get nothing. Did something get messed up when we force shut downed the server? Or am I missing something?

    Should not have. check both client & server firewalls & if the TCP settings on the NICs disable ping reply

    [edit] get command prompt and ask external DNS to resolve
    Code:
    nslookup 8.8.8.8  8.8.4.4
    That's using one google dns to report on the other :)
    which proves connectivity to / thru your gateway
