Configure a static IP address through the CLI

By default, DHCP is enabled on your ExtraHop system. If your network does not support DHCP, an IP address cannot be acquired, and you must configure a static address manually.

Before you begin

You must have the password for the shell and setup user accounts. See Default User Accounts FAQ for the default passwords for these user accounts.
  1. Establish an SSH or console connection to the ExtraHop system.
  2. At the login prompt, type shell and then press ENTER.
  3. At the password prompt, type the shell user password.
  4. To configure the static IP address, run the following commands:
    1. Enable privileged commands:
    2. At the password prompt, type the setup user password, and then press ENTER.
    3. Enter configuration mode:
    4. Enter the interface configuration mode:
    5. Run the ip command and specify the IP address and DNS settings in the following format: ip ipaddr <ip_address> <netmask> <gateway> <dns_server>
      For example:
      ip ipaddr
    6. Leave the interface configuration section:
    7. Save the running config file:
      running_config save
    8. Type y and then press ENTER.
You can now access the ExtraHop system from any web browser through the assigned IP address.
