I just installed the VCSA 6.0 without any problems. Only issue is that the customer told me the wrong default gateway. I'd rather not redeploy the appliance. How do I go about changing the default gateway?
A. To apply a static route on an ESXi host, effective immediately, but not persistent across a reboot:
Connect to host with a ssh client (I prefer putty) and execute the following command:
# route add -net <TargetNetwork> netmask <NetmaskAddress> gw <GatewayAddress> dev <interface>
e.g. route add -net 10.1.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 10.1.1.1 dev eth0
to verify that the route was added successfully. In our example, the entry 10.1.2.0 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 should appear.
B. To apply a persistent static route on the appliance:
Connect to host with a ssh client and open the static-routes file with a text editor:
# vi /etc/sysconfig/network/ifroute-eth0
(supposing the interface is eth0)
For every route add a line with the following format:
<TargetNetwork> <GatewayAddress> <Netmask> <Interface>
Then run the following command:
# service network restart
and finally verify the route with:
You'll have to redeploy because altering the Management network is not permitted in the current version of vCenter 6. I can't find proper documentation on the subject, but you get the following warning from the vCenter 6 console: 'Management network configuration is not allowed.'; screenshot attached.
Never mind the following, it is fore ESXi
There is this in the documentation, but I suspect it may be vestigial. (I'll look into it after the holiday.)
I dont know about vcenter appliance 6.But in vcenter appliance 5.5.You can change the default password by running the below command.
please update are you able to change the default gateway using this method.
This is how I will answer to this question: No.
With VCSA 6.0 GA, to change default gateway, you will have to re-deploy appliance.
Upgrade to U1, Get access to VAMI page now (5480), change the default gateway from VAMI page.
How about after moving a vCenter installation the IP address shows last https://localhost. I don't want to change my IP address - I just want my IP address back. I used the Standalone converter to move it. Any ideas?
Thank you! I was looking for a way to update my VMware vCenter Server Appliance and this script did the trick. Only caveat if you do not an additional interface it did need to be shutdown to add it. I keep my management and internet segmented and once I had the interface I changed the default gateway and it was off to the update races!
This was on vCSA 6.5 and I confirmed with this post -How to “fix” VCSA IP settings from command line. | Digital Kungfu #Virtualization et al
You can use yast command.
Just write yast on command line, it will open the network configuration, use the tab and arrow key to go further.
if you feel hard, you can also edit the route config file.
Try to search route file under etc/
1. Open a console session of vCenter Appliance 6 >>> Type "root" >>> Type "Password of root" >>> Run below cmd.
/opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net3. # Enter No. 2 to change the default gateway >>> enter new gateway >> exit .
Try this and it will help you .
use below command by taking Vcsa on putty.
it will show you the option to change the ip configuration alternatively you can use vcsa configure portle.
