    Video: Data Center Expert | How do I configure the network settings?

    Issue:
    Network settings configuration on a StruxureWare Data Center Expert Appliance.

    Product Line:
    InfraStruxure Central (ISXC)
    StruxureWare Central (SWC)
    StruxureWare Data Center Expert (DCE)

    Environment:
    InfraStruXure Ccentral (all verions)
    StruxureWare Central (all verions)
    StruxureWare Data Center Expert (all verions)

    Cause:
    Upon initial setup, DCE requires that the network settings (IP Address, Subnet mask, Gateway, DNS Servers, and Hostname) are defined to be able to communicate on a network.

    Resolution:

    NOTE: Editing the Network Settings will cause the StruxureWare Data Center Expert Appliance to reboot.
    NOTE: By design, network settings for Data Center Expert must be statically set.  DHCP is NOT supported.




    First Configuration of Network Settings on the DCE Virtual Appliance (7.0 and later):
    1) Open the console of the virtual machine.
    2) In the console view, log in using apcsetup as the username and password.
    3) Within 5 seconds, press m to modify the settings.
    4) Follow the prompts to specify the IP Address, hostname, subnet mask, and DNS servers for the virtual appliance.
    5) After the virtual appliance has restarted, type its IP Address or hostname into a browser.  You can then download and log into the DCE Client.

    First Configuration of Network Settings on the DCE Physical Appliance (7.0 and later):
    1) Provide power, connect the server to the network, and turn on the DCE Virtual Appliance.
    2) Connect a keyboard and monitor to the server.
    2) Log into the console using apcsetup as the username and password.
    3) Within 5 seconds, press m to modify the settings.
    4) Follow the prompts to specify the IP Address, hostname, subnet mask, and DNS servers for the virtual appliance.
    5) After the appliance has restarted, type its IP Address or hostname into a browser.  You can then download and log into the DCE Client.

    Editing Network Settings after Configuration:
    NOTE: The steps listed above work for editing the network settings, in addition to the steps listed below:
    1) Download and log into the DCE Client software.
    2) Navigate to the System Menu > Server Administration Settings > Network Settings.
    3) Make the necessary changes to the network settings and then press Apply and OK.
    4) Once the appliance reboots, the server should be accessible with by using the new network settings.

    Alternative method for All Versions (including version prior to 7.X):
    NOTE:
    This will only work for a virtual appliance if a second network interface is configured for the DCE virtual appliance.
    1) Connect a computer to the second network interface (GB2) port on the appliance.
    2) Configure the computer for DHCP so that it can receive an IP address from the appliance.
    3) The default gateway that is assigned to your computer from the DHCP server is the IP address of the appliance.
        To find the default gateway, open a command prompt > ipconfig/all > Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection > Default Gateway.
    4) Navigate to the Default Gateway by entering the IP address in a web browser.  The DCE web interface should load if everything is configured correctly.
    5) Follow the steps from the Editing Network Settings after Configuration listed above ensuring to use the Default Gateway as the IP address to enter into the appliance. Please note that earlier versions of StruxureWare may have a slightly different menu structure.
