Problem: RE-IP Will Be Executed Upon Failover When The Recovery VM Wants To Keep The Same Static IP As The Source VM’s

Viewed 650 times

Root Cause

In order to set the exact same static IP on the recovery site during FOL/FOT/Move, we must initiate the RE-IP script on the recovered VM during the failover. In order to keep the same static IP the production VM posses, the RE-IP script must run on the recovered VM and set it to the same static IP.


You may notice that RE-IP is executed even though no RE-IP settings are configured for the VPG.


To avoid RE-IP, set the recovery NIC settings in the VPG to use DHCP.

1. Click "Edit VPG" and go to the "NICs" tab;

2. Find "Change vNIC IP Configuration?" setting and select "DHCP";
