Overview

If IP settings of virtual machine configuration should be used for reference only, and all IP configuration inside of guest OS should not be overwritten, it is possible to disable IP settings synchronization.

Resolution

  • via command line

    --configure <yes|no> option for prlctl set [--device-set|--divice-add] net designates if IP settings given in the config will be applied on every start of the virtual machine

    The following list of options will not be automatically passed to the guest OS if --configure no is configured:

    ipadd: the IP address to be assigned to the network adapter in the virtual machine.

    dhcp: specifies whether the virtual network adapter should get its IP settings through a DHCP server.

    dhcp6: specifies whether the virtual network adapter should get its IPv6 settings through a DHCP server.

    gw: the default gateway to be used by the virtual machine.

    gw6: the default IPv6 gateway to be used by the virtual machine.

    nameserver: the default DNS server to be used by the virtual machine.

    searchdomain: the default search domain to be used by the virtual machine.

    For example, to add the network interface with IP settings synchronization disabled:

    prlctl set VMName --device-add net --network Bridged --ipadd 10.0.1.3 --gw 10.1.0.1 --configure no  
    

    Note: By default, configuring any of the settings above automatically sets --configure option to "yes".

  • via PVA

    In PVA Control Panel it is possible to set "Configure network settings from guest OS" to prevent IP synchronization
