Using VMWare ESXi 5.0. I had to move a 2008 server vm to another hypervisor. Found that I could not use VSphere to Migrate the VM, had to use VMware Stand Alone Converter.
Original VM is shut down.
If I set the IP address of the moved VM to it's original value, I get a "IP Address Conflict" message and networking stops. If I set the IP to a different value than everything works.
I've verified that there is nothing on the network using this IP, issue is internal to this moved vm.
I know that on migrating Linux vms you need to delete /etc/udev/rules/70-persistant-net file and reboot server before static IP is recognized. Wondering if there is an equivalent file to delete in
