It will show you all interfaces and which one of them are using dhcp.
Whether dhcp is fixed or dynamic you must check on your Virtual
Machine configuration. If you are using
VM Ware then
under edit you got Virtual Networking properties. There you will be
able to check if for particular virtual interface you got dhcp
reservations for specific machines. If you did not checked it yet
then we can assume you did not changed default configuration which is
dynamic. You can setup reservation if you wish.

If bridged connection:
f you use bridged networking, your virtual machine needs to have its
own identity on the network. For example, on a TCP/IP network, the
virtual machine needs its own IP address. Your network administrator
can tell you whether IP addresses are available for your virtual
machine and what networking settings you should use in the guest
operating system. Generally, your guest operating system may acquire
an IP address and other network details automatically from a DHCP
server, or you may need to set the IP address and other details
manually in the guest operating system.
If you use bridged networking, the virtual machine is a full
participant in the network. It has access to other machines on the
network and can be contacted by other machines on the network as if it
were a physical computer on the network.
Be aware that if the host computer is set up to boot multiple
operating systems and you run one or more of them in virtual machines,
you need to configure each operating system with a unique network
address. People who boot multiple operating systems often assign all
systems the same address, since they assume only one operating system
will be running at a time. If you use one or more of the operating
systems in a virtual machine, this assumption is no longer true.
