How to change IP address of a ESX Host

As I mentioned previous article, I’d like to show you how to change the IP address.

Open ESX host session and look left bottom corner, you’ll see F2 Customize System/View Logs

That means press F2


Type your password


Open configure Management Network


And then IP configuration and write your IP address and gateway here


And go back to menu. For saving your configuration, press Enter.

Now go to DNS Configuration now and write your DNS IP address and ESX server’s hostname. For example I typed esxhost01 and created A record in my DNS server.


When you press Enter to save your configuration and go back to menu. Now it is time to restart Network management server and go back to Main menu. Press ESC


Press Y

That’s it mate. You’ve done it.
