Change IP address of VxRail manager


Set the static IP address and default gateway for the VxRail Manager VM

Step 1:

Using terminal window SSH client, establish an ssh session to the default IP address for the VxRail Manager VM ( This could also be whatever you’ve set VxRail manager IP address to already.

ssh mystic@

Manager VM with the following username and password:

Username:mystic Password:VxRailManager@201602!

Change to the root user account

su root <enter>

Enter the administrator account passwordPassw0rd! <enter>

Change the network settings using the following command:
/opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_set_network eth0 STATICV4

This will disconnect your SSH session, you should then be able to reconnect using your new IP address. I like to ping both IP’s to see the change from old to new.
