    change the IP address from the initial setup of the simulator.

    This is by design.  The OnCommand System Manager has a bug that will cause your /etc/rc and /etc/hosts file to potentially be corrupted.  To alleviate this Netapp disabled the capability with OnCommand System Manager

    Do this via CLI

    ifconfig <interface_name> <new_IP_address> netmask <mask>

    Login to the virtual machine or physical machine that you have emulator running.  The command is listed above, her's a more granular example.

    login as root

    example: if you setting up as with Class C subnet on interface e0a

    ifconfig e0a netmask
