  • Hi,

    Can you please share the screenshots of the primary and replica VM network adapter settings (like below):

    Can you also confirm if the MAC address of the primary VM conflicts in anyway with any other VM in the replica server?

    Have you failed over the VM and noticed that the MAC address changed or were you just looking at the replica VM setting?
