Here is a very quick and dirty tech tip on changing the IP address of your VMware vMA. There are two ways of doing this, the Linux way or the VMware Setup Wizard.
Using your favorite text editor (Vi in my case) edit the following file using sudo:
# sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
You should see something similar to the following:
DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=static PEERDNS=no ONBOOT=yes IPADDR=192.168.4.42 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 GATEWAY=192.168.4.1
Make the necessary changes and write-quite (:wq)
Restart the network service:
# sudo service network restart
Change the working directory to /opt/vmware/vma/bin/
# cd /opt/vmware/vma/bin/
Run the vmware-vma-netconf.pl script:
# sudo ./vmware-vma-netconf.pl
Follow the on-screen instructions. Job done.
