    Posted Apr 01, 2019 06:17 AM

    Hi,

    I am getting the below error, while deploying VM from a template.

    Everything works well expect the first part assigning the IP address

    Please help.

    Set-OSCustomizationNicMapping : 01-04-2019 11:36:34 Set-OSCustomizationNicMapping       When the IpMode parameter is set to UseStaticIp, you must specify the IPAddress, Subnetmask, Dns

    (on Windows

    specs only), and DefaultGateway parameters.

    At D:\deploy_Template\testdeploy.ps1:7 char:74

    + ... icMapping | Set-OSCustomizationNicMapping -IpMode UseStaticIp -IpAddr ...

    +             ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In the script you are using -IpAddress $item.ipaddr while the CSV column says ipaddress
