#VMware #virtualization

I mentioned this on the video, it might be time to make a new video on bringing VHD into an XCP VM. It’s a lot easier now and you can just create the VM and copy a VDI into the disk from XO. Only issue I’ve had is NIC set with a static IP, and I’ve worked around that in my own way (not necessarily the best way).

Depends on how you have your network set up. If you configured static leases then when you create the VM just make sure to copy the MAC address for your NIC. So when it boots it will get the correct IP.

Nope, didn’t work for me. I kept getting an error saying that another interface (no longer present) was using that IP. Same if I went in to specify an IP after it was booted. My work around was to set the server to DHCP and get a lease, disk2vhd, start the VM after import, then set it back to the IP I wanted.

Ad I said., not the best way but it worked for me. I did need to clean up some DHCP and DNS records after.

Static leases are coming from DHCP. I’m not talking about statically assigning on the OS itself. The static lease is handed out based on the MAC address.
