How do you change the IP address of an EQUALLOGIC SAN PS4000?

I just started a job that the previous engineer had attached an EQUALLOGIC SAN PS400 to our local network and configured an local IP so he could remote in to the web interface and play around with it. He walked out suddenly and did not pass on much info. I have hired a contractor to assist getting this SAN set up and running, but I want to get it moved to our COLO, where it will perminently be located. I will need to change the IP address to something on the scheme over there though and that is what I am having trouble with. Where is the local IP and how can I change it? I figured once it is up at our COLO with an IP we can reach then our contractor will be able to work on it remotely, but I would like to have it in place first

If you have access to the GUI interface it's best to change the IP before you relocate it at your COLO site.  If not, you'll have to use the console cable and go in via CLI.  One suggestion is to get an equallogic login setup.  There's a lot of support and how to's.  Go here - https://www.equallogic.com/secure/login.aspx

Forgot to note...  Make sure to change the group IP as well as the two interface IP's.  If desired also change the management IP.

One other note.  Equallogic systems usually require or have support agreements.  A call into Dell support is a good option too.  The equallogic team has always been helpful and quick to resolve any questions or issues for me.
