Incorrect IP displayed in vCD UI

I have found an instance where the vCD UI displays the incorrect IP address for a VM.  The IP address in vCD claims to be 3.239.240.53, however, the VM actually has an address of .52 (see the images below).

I am able to RDP into this vm with the .52 address.

Anyone else seen this?  Has anyone firgured out how to fix it?

Thanks,

Dave

How is the IP address configured on the VCD side of things? IP pool, DHCP, static?  Do you have an up-to-date version of VMware Tools running in the VM?

Sounds like guest customization did not run or was unsuccessful. Can you edit VM properties and confirm that guest customization is enabled and tools are installed in the VM? If so try stopping the VM and start it with force guest customization.
