When deploying a vShield Manager VA, its IP address is set to DHCP by default. Once deployed and started, you can log on through the console to change it to a fixed IP.

Open a VMWare console to the appliance and log on:

manager login: admin
Password: ****** (the CLI 'admin' password you entered during the deployment)

Go into enable mode and enter the setup:

manager> enable
Password: ****** (the enable password you entered during the deployment)
manager# setup

Enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS settings. When finished, you will be prompted to log out.

Note that after setting the IP address, I had to restart the appliance because the web interface was only accessible on the new IP address after a reboot.

If you have not set a password during the deployment of the OVA, the default password is default.
