So you have DC1 in one VM and DC2 in another, it also sounds like they 
have IPs that keep changing.

Running DCs in a VM is an acceptable practice, so it sounds like you 
have something set up incorrectly.

What are the VMs ?

What OS are they running ?

Are the IPs set on the DCs fixed or set by DHCP ?

What OS is running on computer that the VMs are running on ?

Are the VMs and the host using the same IP range ?
