Configure Static Management IP Address (Apstra Server)

If you're not using DHCP, you can use the configuration tool to enter a static management IP address, or you can configure it as follows:

  1. SSH into the Apstra server as user admin. (ssh admin@<apstra-server-ip> where <apstra-server-ip> is the IP address of the Astra server.)
  2. Edit the /etc/netplan/01-netcfg.yaml file (per standard Ubuntu 18.04 practice) to configure the static management IP address. See example below. (For more information about using netplan, see https://netplan.io/examples.)
  3. Apply the change with one of the following methods:
    • Method 1 - Reboot the Apstra server with the command sudo reboot.
    • Method 2 - Run the command sudo netplan apply, then SSH to the new IP address and run the command sudo service aos restart.
  4. If you already have on-box agents, you must reconfigure each device agent (/mnt/flash/aos-config, /etc/aos/aos.conf) to point to the new Apstra server IP address.
