VMWare Ubuntu IP address change


I always have this problem when moving VMWare images of Ubuntu, the most recent of a 10.04 LTS Server. Whenever you move or copy a VMWare image it assigns a new Mac address and Ubuntu starts without properly bringing up the interface.

Really annoying when you are using VMWare server without a console.

To make it grab the IP Address again, simply remove the rule:

[cc lang=“bash”]

sudo rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules


Then restart.

Of course before you move the image you could remove the rule and not have them problem.
