How to get the customized IP rules and IP details of the VM from the recovery site with post power on script?

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I have below question regarding the SRM IP customization rule.

As we know In SRM we can customize IP settings for virtual machines for the protected site and the recovery site. Customizing the IP properties of a virtual machine overrides the default IP settings when the recovered virtual machine starts at the destination site. During this stage, as an application which is running on virtual machine is it possible to track the IP address change happened to virtual machine at the recovered  site. Does VMware provides any tool/procedure to get the IP change information? In other words can we track this network IP changes through localized script/program (which will be executed as part of post power script on recovered VM) on by using these APIs?

Thanks in advance.

Other than the IP customization being documented in SRM (including the IP customizer tool if used), VMware doesn't provide any other tools/scripts.

You could write some kind of script and run it on the VM. SRM supports running scripts as part of a recovery plan. You could also just have the script run at power on.
