persistant ip address on win2k8 guest VM

    Question

  • I am Running Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper V - whick works just fine - however serveral guest VM's all seem to have the same static IP address - which  persists even after I remove or change it.  When I change/ remove the IP address it simply adds the new address as a second ip but it keeps the original one as well.

    Please help to collect the following information for research:

    1.    Run "ipconfig /all >>c:\ip.txt" on Host system and problematic VMs.
    2.    MPS on Host system and problematic VMs.

    1)    Download proper MPS Report tool from the website below.

    2)    Double-click to run it, if requirement is not met, please follow the wizard to download and install them. After that, click Next, when the "Select the diagnostics you want to run" page appears, select "General", "Internet and Networking", click Next.

    3)    After collecting all log files, choose "Save the results", choose a folder to save <Computername>MPSReports.cab file. Please use Windows Live SkyDrive (http://www.skydrive.live.com/) to upload the file and then give us the download address.
