Hassos as OVA vmdk => setup static IP

i have have been running hass on a raspian desktop, it runs fine
now, i want to start hassio with hassos, i have an esx server, so i downloaded the OVA file
my hassio startsup fine, but how can i setup an static IP? how can i work with that USB stick? i dont want an USB stick in my esx server :slight_smile:

how to accomplish this? thnx

The simplest way is to set up a DHCP reservation on your router. It is a far easier way to manage IP usage on a home network.

Thatโ€™s the problem , I cant do Mac reservation on myrouter , most settings are blocked by our ISP provider

maybe i need to passthrough an USB disk? with the static IP on it

is this USB stick only needed one? or if you remove it, will hassos fallback to dhcp again?
