Order of NICs/IPs and its VM DNS name in VCenter

Hi Experts!

I'm not sure what determines which IP correspond to DNS name when i have more than one NIC on my VM, what is the order that vCenter displays and respond the IPs for each VM?

Sorry for the confused constructed question, i hope you get my point.

I just need to get available my VM DNS name on particular IP not random or last appeared or anything else.

How to force vSphere to do that in my way?

That's nothing vSphere is involved in. It's basically either the VM (the guest OS) which dynamically registers its IP addresses in DNS, or a statich DNS entry in case the giest does not dynamically register its addresses.

Moderator: Thread moved to the Linux guest area, since this is nothing specific to vSphere.
