Yes, exactly.

If you ssh into the VR, you'll find all of your VMs listed with a static reservation in the
dnsmasq config. This will persist until you destroy the VM instance in question.

Ok, so that answers my question to. If I assign it an IP in the deploy step or assign it via
the NIC in the instance properties it just does a DHCP reservation. In most instances that
as good as static. Thank you Simon.

I'm not sure whether a scan in performed or not. DHCP uses dnsmasq, so a static entry is configured
in the VR for each VM to keep the ip address reserved for that VM. You can pass in an ipaddress
in the deployvirtualmachine call and that may achieve what you want to achieve. This is exposed
in the GUI as well when you create a VM.

Quick question. If DHCP is enabled on a network, and I statically assign an IP, does the VR
do a scan periodically to exclude static address since there is not a way, that I know of,
to modify the DHCP scope.
