When i install a new vm it fetches its IP from the DHCP server already setup when we install kvm. I am maintaining list of vm mac-addresses and there corresponding IPs (that should be assigned) in my external DHCP server. I want that vm to get its IP form the external server. Anybody please list out the discrete steps required for the above.

Thanks in advance

You have to use bridge networking and not the default one (NAT). The bridge should contain the external interface where your DHCP server is already running.
