You have to threads with the same question. You should close one of the threards down.

Here is the same information as I placed in your other thread:

Take a look at this "Changing the IP address, default gateway and hostname of the Service Console in ESX Server 3.x"

Or you can change/verify manually from SC

Edit /etc/syscongfig/network (Change Gateway value if needed)

Edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-vswif0 (Change IP, Network and Netmask)

Check /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf (For any changes to Network settings that might be needed)

Type "service network restart" (No quotes)

Also review "How to configure networking from the Service Console command line"
