I have 2 Esx host, and a VM with Kcontrol appliance, all is ok.
The Esx hosts have the same network interfaces and the same names,so when i migrate no problems occur.

But powering on the Control appliance on the second host, bad things happens, all the eth interfaces have lost their Ip configuration ! Why?

I think because the mac address of the virtual networks are different from the first esx.

There is a workaraund to start-stop (on a shared san storage) the control appliance without fault time in different esx hosts??

If a ESX node fails I wanna start the appliance in the other node without problems.

Hi, thanks for no reply ! Mad Laughing

I have found myself the solution, I wanna share it in case someone else has this need.

Moving the Vm to another didn't cause the mac change, it will remain the same.
Cloning the machine will change.

but, how to be ready for host fail ?? I cannot move the machine after hardware problem.

We can copy manually the Vm folder from the original datastore to another Esx datastore, or better, moving it to shared storage without adding it to other esx inventory.

When the primary esx fail, you can access to the other Esx datastore o shared storage, add the copied Vm to the inventory and the mac addres will be the same.
