Simply put, the IP resolution is based off of the FQDN. If Integrated Components are installed, you can pass data that way. I use that approach for scripting imaging VMs automation. Either via batch or vbs, add a reg entry containing the
VMs' ip, then retrieve on the host.
FOR /F "tokens=2* " %%a IN ('REG Query "HKCU\Control Panel\International" /v sLanguage ^| find "sLanguage"') DO SET LANG=%%b
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Virtual machine\auto" /v LANG /t REG_SZ /d %LANG% /f
(get-vmkvp -server novamonitor -vm ImagingVM_jpn).lang
Now, if you are facing the problem of a domain joined VM not resolving address, then that's a whole separate issue.
