Hi,

I am getting the below error, while deploying VM from a template.

Everything works well expect the first part assigning the IP address

Please help.

(on Windows

specs only), and DefaultGateway parameters.

At D:\deploy_Template\testdeploy.ps1:7 char:74

In the script you are using -IpAddress $item.ipaddr while the CSV column says ipaddress
