VMWare ESXi Setup

Hello,
I just installed vmware ESXi and am trying to figure it out. It is installed on a Dell PowerEdge Tower. ESXi is setup to use DHCP and I want to give it a static IP address. I also want to give it a servername so that I can add it to DNS. But, I can't figure out where to set the static IP address or how to name the server. Please let me know how I can do this.

Thanks,
John

While logged into ESXi with vSphere Client, go to Config tab, then select 'DNS and Routing' link in the 'Software' box/section. Go into the Properties link at the upper right to make the required changes. You will need to restart your mgmt services, or just reboot your host once it's changed.

Thanks for the info. I was using vmware server 2.0 and this is so much different. Wow. It is almost like starting over.

Yeah...it is different. ESX/i is SOOO much better than Server though...trust me...well, once you get past the learning curve. :)  We're all here waiting for any further help you may require "jhieb" :)

It just posted. This will probably be my last question for the night. I am burned up for the day, and my eyes are in need of some sleep.
