You can modify the NIC settings such as the IP address and the IP allocation mode for the configured NICs from the admin UI.

Note the following limitations when you modify the NIC settings:

  • IPv4 is the only supported IP mode, IPv6 is not supported.

  • When the IP address is changed on a management network IP dynamically, browser redirection is not supported to the new IP address, .

  • When the IP address is changed, all the current sessions in the edge service are lost.

  • When you modify the NIC settings that the administrator interface is currently using, a warning message is displayed that the admin UI might become inaccessible.

  • After you update the IP address, sometimes the VAMI command may fail to assign the new address. In such scenario, the Admin UI redirects to the new IP address with a success notification even though the new IP address is not assigned. However, the old IP address is rolled back and the user can access the Admin UI through the old IP address.

Prerequisites

  • Ensure that you have administrator privileges.

  • If you are changing the IP to a static IP address, you must know the address beforehand.
