I have an OVM 3.1 installation that is providing Oracle Linux 6 VM instances on static IP addresses. The IP addresses are assigned manually in the VM. I can ping and connect to my VMs on their IP address. The network that the VMs are connected to is configured with only the "Virtual Machine" channel.
I really need the IP address to be visible in the OVM Manager "Networks" tab for each VM but currently that field is blank. How can I populate this field? Please let me know if you need any more information to help
There is no means to automatically see the IP address of the VM guests from the VM Manager that I know of. You can just see the virtual nic mac address. I don't know why they put the IP Address column under the virtual machine's networks tab. Maybe its for future use.
