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.*
