I have a VM that was deployed from an OVA file. It deployed just fine and is up and running.
However, its creators for some reason decided that there would be NO command line access (it's Linux-based) Evidently, they believe that EVERY network out there is connected to a DHCP server.
This vm was deployed into a network subnet with no DHCP servers available.
I now need to assign it a static IP so that it can get on the network and do what it is supposed to do. But if I can't log into it, I don't know how to assign it an IP address.
Their support are no help here - they said "Oh, you can do this in VMWare Fusion" Well, VMWare Fusion has a built-in DHCP-like functionality that it uses for this. Not applicable in my use case unfortunately. (We do have vCenter)
Is there a way to give this vm a static IP address by modifying its vmx (or some other) file?
