Use VRO to change IP of a Windows VM

Hello, we are quite new to using VRO.

We are trying to build a workflow that when a VM is powered on it then changes the IP address of the VM.

We are currently running Version 7.6.0.12923317

We would need the workflow to set the IP to a specific one we can set in the workflow.

Is this possible? Does anyone have any workflows that would achieve this.

You can achieve this using the Guest Script Manager package. You'd also need a Powershell / Batch script to set the IP in the Guest OS

GSM is here - https://developer.vmware.com/samples/1317/guest-script-manager-package

I requires & leverages VMTools within the Guest to get the script executed. For Windows you'd need a set of local admin credentials to get access for the IP change

-HTH
