Troubleshooting: How to Get a Valid IP Address When Using a Shared .vdi Hard Drive File
I often share .vdi files (virtual hard drive files) with my students for numerous reasons. I have found that when I share these files my students are not able to obtain a valid IP address. This is because the MAC address of the machine that created the .vdi file is different from the MAC address of the machine running the .vdi file. A quick reset of the 70-persistent-net.rules and everything quickly gets fixed. In this troubleshooting tutorial I show how to quickly fix this problem.
