VMware vMA Tweak – vmware-vima-netconf.pl

This post is the first of a series about VMware vMA 4.0.

Today, here is a little trick for lazy admins (like me :)) to reconfigure eth0 of your vMA appliance without going through some time-consuming manipulations . So logon preferably at the console with the vi-admin account and run the following command: sudo /opt/vmware/vima/bin/vmware-vima-netconf.pl

You will have noticed that this is the same script that is used when you booted up for the first time your vMA appliance. This script will help you configure the network in quicker way as you would do with a regular Linux server.

For the purist, still you can edit files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ and also edit /etc/sysconfig/network file, then restart eth0, etc, etc…
