I tried to fix my docker-machine vm to a fixed ip 192.168.99.101 by following this: fixIP4dm
It was at first successful. But a while later, it gets changed back to the original 192.168.99.105, and I had to do the same again. If I delete and recreate it again, it ends up with 192.168.99.106, and the number keeps going up with every new creation, and that happens even after I kill the DHCP process.
I also tried to use the option
--virtualbox-hostonly-cidr to fix the address as one suggested, though I don’t understand what that means.
docker-machine create -d virtualbox --virtualbox-hostonly-cidr=“192.168.99.101/32” swarmmgr
But it doesn’t work at all gives this “Error creating machine: Error in driver during machine creation: Error setting up host only network on machine start: host-only cidr must be specified with a host address, not a network address”
Would anyone who has been been successful in setting a permanent fixed IP to a docker-machine VM share some experience and insight? or point out what I’m doing wrong.
