not sure what virtualization platform you are using but you should follow the suggested platforms and the instructions posted when you download the sandbox. Usually the failure to update the IP has to do with the line “dhclient” in the startup script that grabs a dynamic IP from your DHCP server (if you have setup the NICs correctly). I would review the instructions closely and try again.

IP fails to update
When I start up the Sandbox VM, it always fails to update the IP address. Once the machine has finished booting up, it displays my ipv6 loopback address to initiate the Sandbox session with. Does anyone know how I can fix this?
