> Hi,
> I'm using deltacloud with vsphere. regarding the network addresses it seems that only
the public addresses field is used.
> This field is populated with the mac address of the machine when the machine is started
but it doesn't get an ip address from a dhcp server.
> As soon a dhcp server offers and ip address and the machine accepts it the mac address
is replaced with the ip address in the public addresses field.
> This is a problem because the macaddress information disappears from deltacloud and there
is no way to retrieve it once the machine has gotten an ip address from dhcp.
> Would it be possible to permanently store the macaddress?
> as sugested by Michal Fojtik:
> <public_addresses>
>   <address type="mac">3c:97:0e:1b:3b:82</address>
>   <address type="ipv4"></address>
> </public_addresses>
> Thank you!
> Xavier
