ResolutionChanging the IP address of the appliance requires editing of the /etc/hosts file then running the modifynetworksettings.sh script. Additionally the DNS entries can be modified using the setnameserver.sh. The process should be executed as root (all versions) or the admin user (3.6 and above)
1. Change the IP address in /etc/hosts (but DO NOT change the hostname)
2. Run the modifynetworksettings.sh specifying the IP adress, netmask and gateway for the appliance using the syntax:
sudo modifynetworksettings.sh <newIP> <newNetmask> <newGateway>
3. Optional - set the DNS search options for the appliance using the setnameserver.sh with the following syntax:
sudo setnameserver.sh <ns1> <ns2>
The attached whitepaper can also be downloaded with these instructions.
