 Hi folks,

  I would like to know if it is possible to add a mechanism to send a simple 
string into the Virtual Machine. For instance, in the case of Vmware, we can 
define a variable called as machine.id in the config file, and this can be 
accessed from inside the VM using the /etc/vmware/vmware-guestd on linux or 
VmwareService.exe on Windows. The main purpose of this is to setup static ip 
address for the Virtual Machine. What you do is:

There is no need for a special mechanism, In linux you can set the
static IP on the kernel command line, see this link for more info.


good luck,
