VM IP Address keeps incrementing

Hi,

Here is my environment:

VMWare Fusion version: 8.5.8 (5824040)

Mac OS Version: 10.12.6 (Mac OS Sierra)

VM Guest OS: CentOS release 7.1

The problem I am facing is that my VM image has the IP address incrementing once every 15-20 minutes. For example, when I boot up the VM, the IP address is 192.168.0.46. Then after 15-20minutes, the IP address in the VM automatically increments by 1 to 192.168.0.47. I have tried setting a static IP address for the VM by editing the dhcpd.conf file. But that did not work. The IP address keeps incrementing every 15-20 minutes.

Please help. Thanks.

Rgds

Gary

What does the logs indicate? Please review https://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/Deployment_Guide-en-US/ch-logfiles.html.

When you say you tried setting a static IP address by editing the dhcpd.conf file and that did not work, what do you mean by this? Again, the logs should provide more input on why this is not working.
