After a long time i am writing this blog as i was so much busy in new challenges in life/work and didnt got the time to write something new. Anyways i am sharing a recent Scenario which i like to share . May be many guys know it but i thought to document and share it.Scenario : We had a new deployment of HCX on-prem via automation completed and somehow its got the ip already assigned to another host in the Onprem environment, and its start conflcting . Worst thing happened that License for Activation the appliance also got consumed. So we need to re-ip the HCX On-prem as we were not having any spare licenses.
I consulted so many links/blogs over the internet but cant find the sconfig file as HCX having a customized flavor .
Solution : To re ip you just need to modify the config file wired.network which reside under “/etc/systemd/network” directory with the New ip you want to assign to the HCX Appliance.
This method can be followed in both HCX On-Prem/Cloud appliances.
