I wanted to provide more details on how to implement Static IP addresses using a Text import file. (see attachment)
NOTE: The 1st line of the CSV file is for documentation purposes and MUST NOT be included when you ‘Import’ the file into Verde.
You can add as many rows as you need in the CSV file to define all of the Login IDs and Static IP addresses required.
From Excel, you MUST save this file as a .CSV format.
You can also edit this file using any plain Text editor (Like Notepad).
There are a small number of fields that are required. (Columns A, B, C, D, E)
Column A: User Login (example is Active Directory authentication)
Column B: Verde Gold image name (Case-sensitive)
Column C: Static IP address (must be consistent with IP addresses on LAN segment of Verde server)
Column D: Sub-net Mask
Column E: Default Gateway
Column F: Virtual Machine name (this field is optional and overrides the Desktop Name specified in ‘Active Directory’ Tab in SESSION SETTINGS).
This Field can be left ‘blank’ to use the normal naming conventions of SESSION SETTINGS.
Columns G -I: You do need some Filler data here. Use commas .. ","

Results after launching the Verde virtual Desktop
You will see below that the Static IP and the Verde Desktop Name from the ‘Import file’ have been implemented within the Live Session.
