We have a ESX server that advertises the wrong IP address on the service management console for managing the server.
Where can I change this?
Thanks

Do you have multiple Service Consoles on the ESX box?

Actually think I just found the answer to this.

The address advertised on the console is cosmetic. It can be edited in the etc/hosts file.
