To update the network settings, use the virtual appliance management interface (VAMI). You cannot modify the network settings from the AppDefense Appliance user interface (UI).


  1. Log in to the AppDefense Appliance with root credentials.
  2. Run the virtual appliance management interface (VAMI) CLI command /opt/vmware/share/vami.
    Verify the list of options available for network settings using the /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_set_network --help command.
  3. Update the desired network configuration parameters.
    For example,
    vami_set_network <interface> (DHCPV4|DHCPV6|AUTOV6|DHCPV4+DHCPV6|DHCPV4+AUTOV6|DHCPV4+NONEV6)
            vami_set_network <interface> (STATICV4|STATICV4+DHCPV6|STATICV4+AUTOV6|STATICV4+NONEV6) <ipv4_addr> <netmask> <gatewayv4>
            vami_set_network <interface> (STATICV6|DHCPV4+STATICV6) <ipv6_addr> <prefix> (<gatewayv6>|default)
            vami_set_network <interface> STATICV4+STATICV6 <ipv4_addr> <netmask> <gatewayv4> <ipv6_addr> <prefix> (<gatewayv6>|default)
  4. Restart the AppDefense Appliance VM.
  5. Log in to AppDefense Appliance using the admin credentials.
  6. Verify the updated network settings under Configuration > Network > Network details tab.


The network settings are updated.
