Setting the static IP address manually

openFilerPerhaps you've installed Openfiler, and realised that the address that you set is incorrect.  You can't use the web interface to change the IP address, so rather than reinstall you need a way to change the IP address manually.


Log on

Log on to your SAN with the root account.

  1. vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROT=static
BROADCAST=192.168.1.255
HWADDR=11:22:33:44:55:66
IPADDR=192.168.1.201
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.1.0
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1

Make your changes, save ifcfg-eth0 and restart the SAN.

If you are using iSCSI with ESXi you will need to reconfigure the Storage Adapters.
