  1. Login to the device with the default username and password (admin/admin).

  2. Enter configuration mode using the command configure

  3. Change the system setting to static (DHCP is enabled by default)

admin@fw# set deviceconfig system type static

  1. Use the following command to set the IP address of the management interface:

admin@fw# set deviceconfig system ip-address <ip address> netmask <netmask> default-gateway <default gateway> dns-setting servers primary <DNS ip address>

  1. Commit the changes using the command commit

  2. Exit configuration mode by using the command exit and then confirm the configurations by running the command show interface management within configuration mode

admin@fw> show interface management ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name: Management Interface Link status: Runtime link speed/duplex/state: 10000/full/up Configured link speed/duplex/state: auto/auto/auto MAC address: Port MAC address 00:50:56:81:ad:e6 Ip address: gateway: Ipv6 address: unknown Ipv6 link local address: fe80::250:56ff:fe81:ade6/64 Ipv6 default gateway: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WebGUI: Please use https://<ip address> to gain access to the WebGUI. Default IP is

  1. Navigate to Device > Setup > Interfaces > Management

  2. Navigate to Device > Setup > Services, Click edit and add a DNS server.

  3. Click OK and click on the commit button in the upper right to commit the changes. Note: When changing the management IP address and committing, you will never see the commit operation complete. This is because the new management IP address will take effect at 99% resulting in a disconnected GUI session. You will have to manually change the URL address to the new management IP to continue using the WebGUI.
