SIM 7.2 gets 169.254.XXX.XXX ip from cluster servers 2008 and 2k8R2 (Microsoft Failover adapter)

Hello,

 

This new fonctionnality (Microsoft Failover adapter) on 2008 microsoft servers gives a new IP in 169.254.XXX.XXX to any node servers and of course SIM gets this IP.

It's a pity because after the discover physical esxi and gather all my VM machines on this esxi, SIM tries to make a ping on 169.254.XXX => so he gets an error.

My fisrt idea was to short my network card as first one but it's seems not possible.

Also SIM get this IP only as primary IP : then no way to switch IP in system properties.

 

I guess some of you have already managed this problem that's why i am coming to you asking your help.

 

Thank you in advance for any answers or ideas.
