could you check if all the hci-tvm logs got the same err msg?
also, it seems like is assigned by the DHCP service in the vlan? because docker using the same subnet, so you can either configure a different subnet for guest vms or change the docker default subnet config, to do so:
here are the steps to reconfig docker subnet:

1. SSH into HCIBench, and create file by: vi /etc/docker/daemon.json
2. add lines to the file and save it ( here we change the docker host ip to make sure not using 192.168 for guest vms ip prefix in my case)
3. systemctl restart docker
4. change data source in grafana:
go to http://HCIBench_IP:3000/datasources admin/vmware, edit both graphite and influxdb by changing the ip from to, save and test the datasource, then you should be good.
