I am creating a cluster setup on virtual boxes. I have Ubuntu 14.4 installed in all systems. Both the systems are having virtual box installed.

I have changed the ip-address to static on both virtual boxes. In the virtual box setting i have made bridge network on the virtual box default setting.

Now i am able to ping local machine from the virtual box on which it is installed. But not getting connection with the other machine or other machine's virtual box.

enter image description here

Help please..

Did you change the mac addresses for the networks cards for those two virtual box machines? I mean... are those addresses different? That may cause problems. Bridge connection is the same as direct connection to the network.

Is there a switch in between? How do you connect those two computers? If there's a switch be sure that there's no security policy that allows only 1 mac address on a port. That can also be the case.
