IP Address settings

When virtual machines are restored to a destination that uses a different network connection, you can specify parameters for IP address mapping. If source VMs running Windows use static IP addresses, you can configure IP address mappings for destination VMs.

Source VM Settings
Specify values for source VMs:
IP Address
Enter a full IP address or an IP address pattern for source VMs.
Subnet Mask
Enter a full IP address or an IP address pattern for the subnet mask.
Default Gateway
Enter a full IP address or an IP address pattern for the default gateway.
Destination VM Settings
Specify settings to be used for destination VMs:
Use DHCP
Automatically assign available IP addresses to be used with the specified destination network.
IP Address
Enter a full IP address or an IP address pattern for destination VMs.
Subnet Mask
Enter a full IP address or an IP address pattern for the subnet mask.
Default Gateway
Enter a full IP address or an IP address pattern for the default gateway.
Preferred DNS Server
Identify the primary DNS server for the destination.
Alternate DNS Server
Identify a secondary DNS server for the destination.
Preferred WINS Server
Identify the primary WINS server for the destination.
Alternate WINS Server
Identify a secondary WINS server for the destination.

IP Address Mapping Examples

The following examples show how IP address settings can be used to remap addresses for a different destination network.

Example 1

With the following settings, IP addresses for source VMs are remapped if they match the pattern 172.20.10.* (for example, 172.20.10.5 would be mapped to 172.30.10.5).

Settings Source VM Destination VM
IP Address 172.20.10.* 173.30.10.*
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 172.20.1.* 172.30.1.*

Example 2

With the following settings, IP addresses for source VMs are remapped if they match the pattern 172.20.*.* (for example, 172.20.65.10 would be mapped to 172.30.65.10).

Settings Source VM Destination VM
IP Address 172.20.*.* 172.30.*.*
Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0 255.255.0.*
Default Gateway 172.20.1.* 172.30.1.*
