Restarting the management network interface might be required to restore networking or to renew a DHCP lease.

Restarting the management network will result in a brief network outage that might temporarily affect running virtual machines.

If a renewed DHCP lease results in a new network identity (IP address or host name), remote management software will be disconnected.


  1. From the direct console, select Restart Management Network and press Enter.
  2. Press F11 to confirm the restart.
