How to change i.p of a TD VM Image

Hi All,

I have a TD VM image of version 15 and i have made a copy of this image i.e. if the original image name is x i have made a copy of it as x_copy.

I have installed VM Workstation and i am able to fire both these images simutaneously.

My objective is to use one of these images as a Unix server and then connect the other image TD database. As the two images are replica of each other the i.p is also same. Hence i want to change the i.p of one of these images.

Can anyone please help me on this?

Thanks

You do the standard (Suse) Linux way:

Computer -> Control Center -> Network Settings -> Edit

Hi Dieter,

Has some issues uploading the screen shot of the Manual proxy configuration

Writing the fields below

HTTP Proxy

Secure HHTP Proxy

FTP Proxy

Socks Host

Each one above also asks for Port.

It's Network Settings, not Network Proxy :-)

You must modify eth0 (lo = localhost, you can't change that), this is the only entry, listed as Ethernet Network Card.

It is strange that you are getting the same IP address assigned to both VM. Teradata VM images use dhcp to obtain IP addresses from VMWare. You may try generating a new MAC address for one of the VM by going to your VM Settings->Network Adapter->Advanced->MAC Address:Generate

Just wanted to add a second method for those who do not have a GUI interface to Linux.

 

Method 1: From the GUI (Graphical User Interface):
Computer -> Control Center -> Network Settings -> Edit

Method 2: (From the Command line running yast)

 

If you do not have access to the GUI you can run yast from the command line:

1) Type "id" to make sure you are root. If not type "sudo su -" to become root

2) Run /sbin/yast
3) Use the arrow keys to navagate to: Network Devices >> Network Settings press [Enter]
4) Make sure eth0 is selected then tab down to "Edit" and press [Enter]
5) Tab down to the IP address field and change the IP address to the new desired IP address
6) Tab down to Next press [Enter]
7) Tab over to "OK" press [Enter]
8) Tab over to "Quit" press [Enter]
