Hi Joyphie,

It looks like the VM is in ZTP mode. ZTP (Zero Touch Provisioning) is used for automatic provisioning/configuration of the switch which involves IP assignment with DHCP server and configuration from a ZTP server. The below documents gives you details on the ZTP process:

If you are testing with VMs and do not need ZTP, you can disable it by using the command: "zerotouch cancel". Note that this will reboot the switch.

Hope this helps.
