Andy Kurth resolved VCL-390.

   Resolution: Fixed

Prevent auto-generated or invalid public IP address from being displayed to user

               Key: VCL-390
           Project: VCL
        Issue Type: Improvement
        Components: vcld (backend)
          Reporter: Andy Kurth
          Assignee: Andy Kurth
          Priority: Minor
           Fix For: 2.3

Windows images may fail to obtain a public IP address from DHCP when they load. When this occurs, an auto-generated 169.254.x.x address is usually assigned. It's not possible to connect to such an address. When the computer is reserved, this address is retrieved and presented on the connection info page. The user tries to connect but can't.
2 improvements:
-Detect invalid public addresses and try to obtain a valid address by running ipconfig /renew -If a valid address can't be obtained, fail the reservation rather than presenting the invalid address to the user
