hello everyone,

I have a few machines that i have cloned/replicated that need their IPS to be changed. Is there a script in vmware to run in vsphere/vcenter or on the windows server to change the IP remotely or automatically?

I am looking to change only as follows in script

xx.xx.xx.10
255.555.555.0
xx.xx.xx.1

DNS
xx.xx.xx.xx
xx.xx.xx.xx


Thanks a million

When you CLONE the Virtual Machine from vCenter Server, you can APPLY, a Customization Specification, which will APPLY and IP Address, automatically as part of the procedure and deployment.

See the documentation here

ideally you should use the windows tools to clone a machine to avoid duplicate SIDs etc.
You can use Netsh to set IPs.
