P2V method that retains IP, regardless of network card?
It's a relatively minor annoyance, but I wondered if anyone's found a non-manual workaround for this? Specifically on Xen.
A physical or vmware to xen conversion creates a new virtual nic, which gets a dhcp lease instead of the static ip set to the physical card. When Xen tools is installed, the card changes again (default virtual realtek to Xen PV Nic) and grabs a dhcp lease again.
I'm going to end up scripting something that reapplies the original ip settings and forces re-registration in dns based on hostname aren't I?
