Changing the Network Settings Of a JSA Console in a Multi-system Deployment

  • You must have a local connection to your JSA console

To change the network settings in a multi-system JSA deployment, remove all managed hosts, change the network settings, add the managed hosts again, and then reassign the component.

  1. To remove managed hosts, log in to JSA.

    The Username is admin.

    1. Click the Admin tab.

    2. Click the System and License Management icon.

    3. Select the managed host that you want to remove.

    4. Select Deployment Actions >Remove Host.

    5. In the Admin tab, click Deploy Changes.

  2. Type the following command: qchange_netsetup.
    Note:

    If you attempt to run qchange_netsetup over a serial connection, the connection can be misidentified as a network connection. To run over a serial connection use qchange_netsetup -y. This command allows you to bypass the validation check that detects a network connection.

  3. Follow the instructions in the wizard to complete the configuration.

    The following table contains descriptions and notes to help you configure the network settings.

    Table 1: Description Of Network Settings for a Multi-system JSA Console Deployment

    Network Setting

    Description

    Internet Protocol

    IPv4 or IPv6

    Host name

    Fully qualified domain name

    Secondary DNS server address

    Optional

    Public IP address for networks that use Network Address Translation (NAT)

    Optional

    Used to access the server, usually from a different network or the Internet.

    Configured by using Network Address Translation (NAT) services on your network or firewall settings on your network. (NAT translates an IP address in one network to a different IP address in another network).

    Email server name

    If you do not have an email server, use localhost.

    After you configure the installation parameters, a series of messages are displayed. The installation process might take several minutes.

  4. To re-add and reassign the managed hosts, log in to JSA.

    The Username is admin.

    1. Click the Admin tab.

    2. Click the System and License Management icon.

    3. Click Deployment Actions >Add Host.

    4. Follow the instructions in the wizard to add a host.

      Select the Network Address Translation option to configure a public IP address for the server. This IP address is a secondary IP address that is used to access the server, usually from a different network or the Internet. The Public IP address is often configured by using Network Address Translation (NAT) services on your network or firewall settings on your network. NAT translates an IP address in one network to a different IP address in another network.

  5. Reassign all components that are not your JSA console to your managed hosts.
    1. Click the Admin tab.

    2. Click the System and License Management icon.

    3. Select the host that you want to reassign.

    4. Click Deployment Actions >Edit Host Connection.

    5. Enter the IP address of the source host in the Modify Connection window.
