Subject Re: Hostname and IP address of VMs created from template.

You need to make sure you have prepared the VM you used to make the template correctly.

There are some instructions in the docs.

Search for the section titled
System preparation for Linux

What guest is that? Did you check manually requesting a lease (like running dhclient or similar)?

Subject: Hostname and IP address of VMs created from template.

 I found that when I create new instances from template of my own( a
centos OS), the IP address
and hostname are not set to the VM automatically, you have to login to the
VM from the UI and set them manually, then a restart will get them take
effect. Does anybody else observe the same issue?
