Thread: Changing LAN IP on DSSv7

  1. #1

    Default Changing LAN IP on DSSv7

    Hello Open-E users,

    We have the need to change network addressing of our LAN. The auxiliary paths will not change (remaining in their own VLANs).
    Is there a special procedure to achieve this ?

    I suppose :
    (obvious prerequisite: configure new IP subnet, and DNS)
    1- Shutdown all VMs
    2- On Windows, remove all iSCSI targets
    3- Stop Failover on both nodes
    4- Change IP on eth0 on both nodes (reboot required, I guess)
    5- Pray, then restart Failover
    6- Reconnect iSCSI targets with new IPs
    7- Restart VMs

    Does it seem a good roadmap ?

    Thanks in advance

    This is correct, but I would make sure that you update to the latest then enable Maintenance Mode then change the IP's (please make sure the VIPs are on a separate network as instructed from the setup of Failover). This video will show you how to enable Maintenance Mode.

    All the best,
