VMware: Changing the IP address of the Service Console on an ESX host (1006946)

March 5th, 2009 1 comment

This article provides steps for changing the IP address of the Service Console on an ESX host.

Prior to changing the IP address of Service Console on ESX hosts

Take the following in to consideration prior to changing the IP address of the Service Console:

  • Changing the primary Service Console’s IP address may result in network connectivity loss.
  • Connect to ESX shell via a remote console or a KVM console. The PUTTY or SSH connection terminates during IP address change.
  • VMware HA and DRS, if enabled, requires must disabled to eliminate failover.
  • Disconnect and remove the host from VirtualCenter.
  • Change the DNS database for the forward as well as the reverse entries if applicable.
  • For manual resolution in /etc/hosts, change the IP for each ESX host in the VMware HA cluster and if needed in any other host in your environment.
  • If there is more than one Service Console present, determine the primary by checking /etc/sysconfig/network for default gateway device and IP address.
