Hi,

Can anyone here please let me know what to do in my VMware VCenter 5,1 in order to deploy certain Virtual Machine for separate group type with specific IP from a pool of IP address as follows:

Delivery Group 1 - (Server Team, 8 people)
IP address range: 172.1.5.1 until 172.1.5.8

Delivery Group 2 - (Application Team, 20 people)
IP address range: 172.1.5.9 until 172.1.5.29

Delivery Group 3 - (Accounting & Finance Team, 50 people)
IP address range: 172.1.5.30 until 172.1.5.30

Delivery Group 4 - (Remote Access outside of Office, the rest of the people)
IP address range: 172.1.5.31 until 172.1.5.253

The reason it must be within that scope is that because the firewall rule must be created differently for each of the groups.

is there anything that I can or must do to achieve the above requirement ?

As far as i know VMware is not capable of assigning IP's to the VM's in a manner that you are looking for.
You will have to use DHCP or third party tools to achieve such kind of requirement.

This kind of advanced configurations can be achieved by using products like Horizon View and vCloud director etc.

Hi Abhilash,

is there any way by using Windows Server 2012 DHCP based on certain OU or Computer object name, the IP address can be assigned ?
