Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager
After a virtual machine has been deployed in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), you can view the properties of the virtual machine. You can modify some of the properties that you view in the properties dialog box. However, for some properties, the state of the virtual machine must be off to allow modifications.
As of System Center 2012 R2, the properties of IP addresses have been enhanced to include all addresses on a vNIC, not just the addresses that are in an IP pool.
