Can we assign static IPs in MCS-created machines?

Normally DHCP we use it

You could use DHCP reservations using hostname and MAC address assignment.

For example, export a list of hostnames and MAC addresses from your hypervisor and save the output to file, such as in a csv format. Take the output file and insert IP addresses, and the import into your DHCP server. PowerShell would be my go to tool for something like this.

Let's take an example, no DHCP available.
In this case, can we assign static IPs to MCS-created machines?

You are either going to have to create persistent machines or implement DHCP.  There's no reason you can't limit your DHCP to a predefined list of MAC addresses.

PVS does not require DHCP, but it's a good idea.  You can boot your PVS machines from BDM disks attached to the individual machines.  It's much less convenient than DHCP, but it works.
