You can customize IP settings for individual virtual machines for both the protected site and the recovery site.

Procedure

  1. Click Recovery Plans, and click the plan that you want to customize.
  2. Click the Virtual Machines tab, right-click a virtual machine, and select Configure.
  3. Select the NIC for which you will modify IP Settings.
  4. To customize settings, enable the Customize IP settings during recovery option.
  5. Click Configure Protection or Configure Recovery, depending on which set of IP settings you want to configure.
  6. Click the General tab to configure settings.
    1. Choose the type of addressing to be used.

      Available options include DHCP, static IPv4, or static IPv6.

    2. For static addresses, enter an IP address, subnet information, and gateway server addresses.

      Alternately, if the virtual machine is powered on and has VMware Tools installed, you can click Update to import current settings configured on the virtual machine.

  7. Click the DNS tab to configure DNS settings.
    1. Choose how DNS servers are found.

      You can use DHCP to find DNS servers or you can specify primary and alternate DNS servers.

    2. Enter a DNS suffix and click Add or select an existing DNS suffix and click Remove, Move Up, or Move Down.
  8. Click the WINS tab to enter primary and secondary WINS addresses.

    The WINS tab is available only when configuring DHCP or IPv4 addresses for Windows virtual machines.

  9. Repeat 5 through 8 to configure recovery or protection settings, if required.

    For example, if you configured IP settings for the protected site, you might want to configure settings for the recovery site.

  10. Repeat the configuration process for other NICs, as required, beginning by choosing another NIC as described in 3.
