Replicated VM is not getting IP address

I have replicated Ubuntu VM from one site to another using Vmware Replication Appliances on both sites.
both sites are in the same subnet (this is LAB environment)

However when I powered on the Replicated Ubuntu , it got stuck on trying to get IP address from DHCP.
I wonder why is not able to get IP

Thank you

If it's a replicated VM, it will be identical, this is normal and to be expected.

You would not normally expect Production and DR to be on at the same time.

Is it connected to a live network? (with a DHCP server)

If you use a static IP Address, can you ping other devices on the network?

There is no MAC Address conflict?

IT is happening because you would have same MAC Address on both sides as its a replicated machine.
Is the source VM powered off?
Try powering off the source and see if this picks up and IP.

I also vote for a MAC conflict.

Yes the Source VM is powered off, that 's how I managed to recover the Target VM from VRA

Try this

sudo dhclient -r
This will perform the release operation.

sudo dhclient
This will get a new IP.

Also make sure that VM Network is a valid portgroup on this switch of target host.

I noticed the Source VM Mac Address and the Target VM Mac address are the same, though the Source VM is powered off..

I believe that they source VM Mac and the Target VM Mac are supposed to be the same….
I could be wrong…I am not sure

They will be the same as they are the same VM's they shouldn't change.
Did you try the commands i gave you?

The Source VM was not fully configured..
I reconfigured it and now it replicated properly…

Thank you
