Assigning a Static IP If DHCP is Disabled

Assign a static IP address to the interfaces, if DHCP is not enabled.

Procedure

  1. Login using the following default credentials:

    Login: root

    Password: cvadmin

    Note: This password can be changed during setup.

  2. Navigate to the following folder:

    /opt/commvault/MediaAgent

  3. Execute the following command to generate an input configuration file:

    ./cvconfignw.py genconfig <output configuration file path>

  4. Edit the configuration file to add the device name, IP, gateway and name server details.

    [network]
    device =
    ipaddr =
    gateway =
    nameserver1 =
    nameserver2 =
    netmask =

    Where:

    device is the network interface name.

    For example:

    The entries in this file should be similar to the following:

    [network]
    device =eno3
    ipaddr =101.102.103.104
    gateway =101.100.100.100
    nameserver1 =103.99.99.1
    nameserver2 =104.99.99.2
    netmask =100.100.100.1

  5. Execute the following command to apply the settings:

    ./cvconfignw.py configure <config file path>

  6. Repeat these steps in the other nodes.

What to Do Next

  • Setup a block consisting of 3 nodes to ensure that the correct nodes are identified and configured when the setup is run. For more information, see Setting up a Block.
