Virtual Machine Manager - IP address is not show

Just installed Ubuntu. Everything went so nicely. Everything works. But one thing bothers me:


I can do SSH from another host to that IP address with no problem. I saw on some YouTube videos people do not have IP addresses for some VMs.

Any idea where it can be fixed? I do not restart NAS now, but I will check after the restart.

The problem is solved.

Need to have a guest OS agent. For Ubuntu/Debian these two should be executed

sudo apt install -y qemu-guest-agent
sudo systemctl start qemu-guest-agent

Almost immediately the IP addresses show up.

Yes! You need to install guest tools on any OS to get the IP to show up!
