How do I give the ART VM a static IP address?
- Get to the command line, edit two files and run a command.
- With the VMware Infrastructure client (or VMware Server), select the ART VM. The Console tab should show you a splash screen with the TSMworks and ART logos, and a login box beneath them. Log in as username “art”, password “tsmworks”. Then right-click anywhere on the screen background and pick Terminal to get a command-line prompt.
- Type “sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces”; the nano editor displays that file. Make the last section look something like this:
# The primary network interfacereplace 192.168.0.100 with an address you know won’t cause conflicts on your network; your netmask is often 255.255.255.0. If so, set “network” to “address” but with a xero for the last digit, and “broadcast” to “Address” with 255 for the last number. Find gateway by running ipconfig (Windows) or ifconfig (Unix) on a working machine that’s on the same network as ART.
iface eth0 inet static
Type “sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf”; the nano editor displays that file. Make it look something like this:
Replace “tsmworks.net” with whatever your domain uses (“mycompany.com”, for example) and the nameserver with your DNS server – again, from ipconfig or ifconfig.
Then run these commands:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
sudo killall -9 dhclient3
and try to browse to your IP address.
