Configuring Appliance Networking (8.0)


Configuring Appliance Networking (8.0)


If you need to change a newly deployed appliance’s IP address, you can use the VM Console within the hypervisor client.

Note: For Hyper-V users, if you are using a specific VLAN for your appliance network, that must be configured on the appliance VM before connecting. Use the Network Adapter section of the VM settings to configure VLAN ID.

After the initial configuration is complete you can change appliance networking using the web interface (with the exception of the Presentation appliance).
