I'm trying to set up a Windows 7 VM using KVM and the "Virtual Machine
Manager" application. My existing internal network is
I'd like to either have the VM on the same network, or somehow
configure it so it has access to the resources (DNS, file shares, etc)
on that network.

How can I do this? It seems disabling the DHCP, in an attempt to give
it an existing IP, is not possible. Is DHCP required? If so, do I need
to set up a forwarding DNS server on the host network to NAT and
forward to the real internal DNS server?

When trying to disable NAT, and choose "Route", with DHCP disabled, it shows:

Error changing VM configuration: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'unlinkNode'
