ART Static IP

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 interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.0.100
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0
broadcast 192.168.0.255
gateway 192.168.0.1
replace 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.

Type “sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf”; the nano editor displays that file.  Make it look something like this:

search tsmworks.net
nameserver 192.168.1.1

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.
