    I'm in the progress of moving from VMware server 1.0.10 to qemu-kvm on 64-bit CentOS servers.

    This looks like an easy thing to do:
    Convert the VMware image:
    qemu-img convert -f vmdk -O qcow2 "old.vmdk" "new.qcow2"

    When I boot this new images with virt-manager the network settings have changed from fix IP to DHCP. How can I avoid this?

    Not sure why this happens. Did you check if the network is set to a static IP in the new KVM VMs?

    I've been reading this is a bug and should be fixed in the next release.
    Looks like I have to wait for a CentOS upgrade.
