ESX 4.1 DNS Configuration Grey Out

I would like to change the DNS settings from my vSphere client. I can only change the management IP address and subnet only but not default gateway and dns.

Is there any method to change it?

Please see that attached jpg file.

You will have to go to the physical server (use the screen provided & keyboard) and open the console there not via Management Console or SSH.
