MAC and IP address conflict in a virtual machine

Details

  • Any IP address set in the LAN for this virtual machine complains that there is an IP address conflict for a particular MAC address
  • This MAC address is different from the entry in the .vmx file of the virtual machine
  • The MAC address is actually one of the NICs in the blade center trunk switch

Solution

The issue occurs when the ARP table does not reflect the accurate information. For more info on ARP
