Looking for advice here. In the set up we have, vmware with 2 hosts and around 20 vms. All working fine.
Vcentre is installed on 1 vm in the datacentre.
Earlier today I created a win7 vm and added to domain okay.
I assigned a static ip and all was fine. However I then remote connected to the new vm, and got a bit mixed up. I inadvertently went to the vcentre and changed it's ip to the new vms ip.
As a result the vcentre was 'lost' though all vms were fine. I couldn't access sphere client to the vcentre.
When I went to check later, I noticed another admin had put everything back okay. A relief of course, but I would like to know what they did to put it back.
In other words how did they connect to this vm if the ip was changed?
