VMWare Ubuntu IP address changeLinux Ubuntu · VMWare
I always have this problem when moving VMWare images of Ubuntu, the most recent of a 10.04 LTS Server. Whenever you move or copy a VMWare image it assigns a new Mac address and Ubuntu starts without properly bringing up the interface.
Really annoying when you are using VMWare server without a console.
To make it grab the IP Address again, simply remove the rule:
sudo rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
Of course before you move the image you could remove the rule and not have them problem.comments powered by Disqus
