If a machine where an agent is installed is configured as a DHCP client, will the agent update it's ip address with the core server automatically when it changes?

If an agent machine's ip address changes, can VM or SCM automatically be updated with the new ip address?

Yes, VM and SCM can be updated when a machine's IP address changes. 

1. Open the Netiq Core Services Configuration Utility. 

2. Click on the Network Tab.

3. Set the DHCP Support Enabled to True and Force System IP Lookup to True also. 

4. Click Apply.  Then when an IP Address changes VM will lookup the current IP before sending a command.
