Have you set internal IPs in VMWare and cannot ping between them on servers?  It is probably because you are using an older than 6.5 version of VMWare's switch without MAC learning.  To fix it you'll need to enable Promiscuous mode on the port group or change the software version ot 6.5 which has MAC learning and will make things work fine again.
