You can modify the IP address that the Orchestrator client interface uses to communicate to the server by running the Configure the network settings workflow in the Configuration plug-in. You can also configure the network settings by using the REST API.

About this task

Make sure that the network provides a fixed IP, which is obtained by using a properly configured DHCP server (using reservations) or by setting a static IP. The Orchestrator server requires that the IP address remains constant while it is running.

The Configuration plug-in contains a workflow for configuring the Orchestrator network settings. To change the network settings of the Orchestrator server, you can run the Configure the network settings workflow by navigating to Configuration > Network in the Workflows view of the Orchestrator client. In addition, you can also run the workflow by using the Orchestrator REST API.

For more information about configuring the Orchestrator database connection by using the Orchestrator configuration interface, see Configure the Network Connection.
