Platespin and DHCP weirdness - 1.Apr.2011 12:13:58 AM

We did some P2V conversions recently with Novell's PlateSpin tool. The conversions themselves were flawless with once exception. We suffered some additional downtime because the virtual machines created during the process grabbed DHCP addresses and then updated DNS entries for the server name with those DHCP-provided addresses. At the end of each conversion, we've had to go to the DHCP server, manually remove the DHCP lease association and update the server's DNS record to put it back to the original IP address.

This has also happened when we've used a static IP on the virtual machine for the conversion process.

Has anyone else seen this behavior?
