I have 3 hosts: h1, h2, h3. They get their IP addresses via DHCP on a host-only vnet. First time I started them I did in this order h1, h3, h2 so they got addresses ending in .142, .143 and .144 respectively. Now everytime I boot them they get the same IPs no matter which order they boot. How can I reset this? (I want to start h2 second to get .143).

You can also manually delete the leases. Perform the following steps:

I also had to delete the hashes (VNET_x_DHCP_CFG_HASH) from /Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/networking, otherwise the Network Adapter settings will be greyed out (see Network Settings options greyed out…). Also, make sure that neither Fusion nor vmnet* processes are running, or quit/kill them before you modify any file.
