Description

Address assignment
Defines how IP addresses are assigned to the appliance in either of these methods:
  • Manually by using a static IP address.

  • Automatically by using DHCP addresses assigned by a DHCP server.

Default value:

Manual

CAUTION:

Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends using a static IP address for best results.

DHCP randomly assigns addresses. If the DHCP server changes the address assigned to the appliance, connectivity issues, including failures, might result.

IP address

For manual address assignment, supply the IP address of the appliance. For DHCP address assignment, DHCP provides the IP address.

Example:

192.0.2.0
