comment Static IP but DNS server from DHCP (Can't use a reservation)
Ok, I am accepting this because it's the closest thing to a solution :) Should someone be interested, we decided to clone the VM using a script that will spawn a new machine, wait for it to be up and running, then connect to it and configure as needed.

Thanks for the idea, but I'm not sure that this is going to work as expected: the server would still think that the machine got a lease: what happens with dynamic DNS updates from DHCP? I think that the DNS would register a dynamic entry with the wrong IP.

that would mean having two machines, possibly on the same network, with the same mac address

no it's not :) I want to set the IP address of a certain machine statically, and make it ask for the DNS servers using DHCP, without being assigned an IP address over DHCP. I think this should be possible using DHCPINFORM messages.
