While setting up the home lab for vRealize Operations Manager, we noticed that IP address for Master node was wrongly configured. We planned to change it as per our IP inventory. There are couple of steps that you need to follow to change the IPv4 configuration in vRealize Operations Manager. Please note that this is in Master node. However, you can do the same in other nodes as well.

To change the IP address of vRealize Operations Manager, you need to edit below files in vROps Appliance. Make sure that you don't miss even a single file out of the list below, else there will propelm while accessing the vROps environment using new IP address. Let's play with these files and see the complete process to change the IP address.

Commands and File Names

Access putty and run below commands. Wherever you find old IP, change it to new IP, that's the rule.

/opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_set_network eth0 STATICV4 NEW_IP SUBNET NEW DEFAULT_Gateway

Example: Your new IP is, then command will be as below.

  • /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_set_network eth0 STATICV4

Other commands that you need to run after configuring IPv4, are mentioned below.

  • service vmware-casa stop
  • cp /storage/db/casa/webapp/hsqldb/casa.db.script /tmp/
  • vi /storage/db/casa/webapp/hsqldb/casa.db.script
  • service vmware-casa start
  • /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/sliceConfiguration/data/
  • /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf/
  • /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf/persistence/
  • /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf/
  • /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf/



Login to vROPs appliance console and check current IP configuration using "ifconfig" command.

/opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_set_network eth0 STATICV4

service vmware-casa stop

cp /storage/db/casa/webapp/hsqldb/casa.db.script /tmp/
