4.1 Changing the IP Address of the Administration Console

We recommend that you install the Administration Console with the IP address that it will always use because all of the devices that import into the Administration Console use this address to establish secure communication with the Administration Console.

The only tested method of changing the IP address so that all other devices trust the Administration Console is to install a secondary console with the new IP address and then promote the secondary console to be the primary console. Remember to change the IP addresses of all components pointing to the new Administration Console.

See the following sections:

Converting a secondary console into a primary console is not a simple task. The task was designed as a disaster recovery solution when the primary console is no longer available. It is not a simple configuration change.
