S8300E R8.1 AVP - Change Default Gateway IP

S8300E R8.1 AVP - Change Default Gateway IP

S8300E R8.1 AVP - Change Default Gateway IP

(OP)
Hoping someone has done this in the past.

A - have an S8300E with the Default Gateway IP address originally set to 10.181.15.2 - per client's IT Mgr. We didn't question it because it matched their AVP - CM - UTIL - BSM IP Scheme ... 10.181.15.X

B - Now their IT dept is saying the DGW IP needs to be changed to - 10.181.14.2 ....

The DGW IP is originally added thru the AVP Kickstart ....

trying to find out the easiest method to edit it ... if possible at all?

Maybe thru SDM or login into ESXi ?

Let us know. Thanks!

Connect a screen and keyboard to the AVP and change it via the console GUI or

SSH in and use the following command: esxcfg-route 10.181.14.2

We have tried that and got this message back ...

"ERROR: unable to set VMkernel gateway address 10 10.181.14.2 as there aren't kernel interfaces on the same network with that IP address

Let me know.

Thansk!

The subnet mask may be wrong then, if the gateway is on 10.181.14.0 and your IP is on 10.181.15.0 they might be using a /23 (or larger) subnet, try using a mask of 255.255.254.0

Ask them to confirm the gateway IP and subnet mask.

That's exactly what the solution was!

255.255.254.0

Thanks for your time!

Can you help with the ESXi command line syntax to reset the SNM?

The AVP is 10.181.15.248

Tried this syntax command but it fails??

From Putty and SSH - ADMIN/ROOT login.

esxcli network ip interface ipv4 set -i vmk1 -I 10.181.15.248 -N 255.255.254.0 static

RE: S8300E R8.1 AVP - Change Default Gateway IP

Think you're missing a switch "-t" to set the interface type to dhcp/static try:

esxcli network ip interface ipv4 set -i vmk1 -I 10.181.15.248 -N 255.255.254.0 -t static

Try this first to list the vmk interfaces and confirm the name (as it's generally vmk0 as the default/first created):

esxcli network ip interface ipv4 get

After, restart the services (as it's not live this is the easiest way, it does all mgmt stuff):

services.sh restart
