Cannot set a static IP to a vNic

This post was originally published on this site

Hello,

 

Using Vijava, I want to add a new vnic on an existing VM, assign a specific portgroup to it and then set a static IP to it.

Adding a new vnic and assign a portgroup to it works fine. But when trying to set a static IP to the vNic I get the following error:

 

java.rmi.RemoteException: VI SDK invoke exception:com.vmware.vim25.InvalidRequest at com.vmware.vim25.ws.WSClient.invoke(WSClient.java:122)

at com.vmware.vim25.ws.VimStub.checkCustomizationSpec(VimStub.java:1956)

at com.vmware.vim25.mo.VirtualMachine.checkCustomizationSpec(VirtualMachine.java:172)

at ReconfigVMnicToDVS.assignStaticIp(ReconfigVMnicToDVS.java:151)

at ReconfigVMnicToDVS.main(ReconfigVMnicToDVS.java:119)

 

Clearly the request is wrong but I don’t know how to find what is missing. I searched on the forums, I tried different combinations but got the same result.

 

I attached the complete Vijava code here. Also I attached a picture with the details of the request.

I’m using Vijava 5.5

 

I would appreciate any help.

 

Thank you,

Costin
