An error message that indicates a network problem appears in the console of a newly deployed Identity Appliance.

Problem

When you deploy the Identity Appliance in vSphere and select the option for a fixed IP address, you enter the IP address, default gateway, netmask value, and domain name server.

If the virtual appliance starts while the network is unavailable, however, the settings might not be successfully applied, and No Networking Detected appears on the console screen of the virtual appliance.

Results

After deploying the Identity Appliance with a fixed IP address, log in to the virtual appliance console, and use the following command to configure the network settings.
