Symptoms:

When performing any recovery operation and re-IP settings are defined for a SuSE 11 VM that has the 3rd party VM Tools installed, re-IP fails.  The VPG can still perform the recovery operation but the recovery VM that is running SuSE 11 will not get the IP settings defined in the VPG.
This is caused by an unsupported version of VM Tools on the guest OS.  Zerto only supports the official VM Tools package for re-IP operations.

Solution:

Remove the 3rd party VM Tools installation, and install VMWare's VM Tools.  The following VMWare KB articles provide walkthroughs on how to do this: using RPM - https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=1018392 using Compiler - https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=1018414 Once VM Tools are installed, perform the recovery operation once more and confirm re-IP settings.
