When a VM guest is attached to a VLAN in Oracle VM Manager, the guest cannot be pinged. The issue occurs when more than one server is in the server pool and another VM guest is running on that server.

The issue does not present with only one server in the server pool. However, the issue can appear when a second server is added to the pool.
