    How to make virtual switch IP address persistent?


    I'm tired of setting up IP address for every virtual machine after restarting computer.

    When computer is restarted the IP address of all virtual switches are randomized and the result is that virtual machines all become offline, how do I make them persist on system reboot?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Btw, I have static IP set up for each of the virtual machines.
    DHCP is not an option, but even that would not work since the default gateway field is randomized too.

    :)

    IP Interface Priority (physical and virtual)

    Is it possible to change the ifIndex number (set it lower for the physical adapter than the ifIndex numbers assigned to virtual, VMNet, adapters) using the Set-NetIPInterface command (or some other powershell command)?

    This would be on a Windows 10 operating system. I have an application that gets a list of local IP address and on the PC it runs on VMware is installed and has multiple virtual adapters. My application always returns the IP address of one of the virtual
    adapters but I need it to get the IP address of my physical adapter so I need its IP address to be first in the list.

    Any suggestions? (A registry edit maybe?)

    Finding IP address

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to find printer’s IP address:

    1. Type Devices and Printers in the Windows search bar.
    2. Select on the printer and click on
      Manage.
    3. Click on the Ports tab.
      You will be able to find printer’s IP address under the ‘Ports’ tab.

    Few printers also have a “Test print” option on the printer. When you print a test page from network printer, the page shows the IP address along with other details.

    Note: If it is set on DHCP mode the IP address will constantly change.
    The IP address is assigned automatically by your router using a protocol called DHCP.

    Hope it helps.
