5.2 Changing the IP Address of an Identity Server

These instructions assume that your Identity Server and Administration Console are not on the same machine. If they are on the same machine, see Section 5.1, Changing the IP Address of the Administration Console.

To move a machine or change the IP address for the Identity Server:

  1. In the Administration Console, click Devices > Identity Servers.

  2. Click the server name.

  3. On the General page, click Edit.

  4. Specify the new IP address in the Management IP Address field and, if necessary, a port.

  5. Click OK, then click Close.

  6. On the Identity Server, stop the server communication service by using the following command:

    Linux: /etc/init.d/novell-jcc stop

    Windows: net stop jccserver

  7. Change the IP address by using an operating system utility:

    Linux: Click YaST > Network Devices > Network Card, select a method, select the card, then click Edit.

    Windows: Click Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection > Properties > Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Properties.

  8. Change to the jcc directory:

    Linux: /opt/novell/devman/jcc

    Windows Server 2003: \Program Files\Novell\devman\jcc

    Windows Server 2008: \Program Files (x86)\Novell\devman\jcc

  9. Run the configure command:

    Linux: conf/Configure.sh

    Windows: conf\configure.cmd

    The command must be run from the jcc directory because it needs access to files that are available from this directory.

  10. When you are prompted for the local listener IP address, enter the new IP.

  11. When you are prompted for the administration server IP, enter the IP address of the Administration Console.

  12. Follow the prompts and accept the defaults for ports and admin user.

  13. Replace all references to the old IP address in the server.xml file with the new IP address:

    1. Change to the Tomcat configuration directory:

      Linux: /var/opt/novell/tomcat5/conf

      Windows Server 2003: \Program Files\Novell\Tomcat\conf

      Windows Server 2008: \Program Files (x86)\Novell\Tomcat\conf

    2. In a text editor, open the server.xml file.

    3. Search for the old IP address and replace it with the new IP address.

    4. Save your changes.

  14. Start the server communication service by using the following command:

    Linux: /etc/init.d/novell-jcc start

    Windows: net start jccserver

  15. Restart Tomcat:

    Linux: Enter the following command:

    /etc/init.d/novell-tomcat5 restart

    Windows: Enter the following commands:

    net stop Tomcat5

    net start Tomcat5
