IBM 3494 LM IP address configure/change

Experts,

I have been assigned and almost completed the (new to us) install and setup of an IBM 3494 tape library dataserver with 4 frames. I have completed this except for 1 last task, setting the LM IP address.

It has a valid, working IP that I can connect to directly from my laptop and browse the built in web server but I cannot find any way to change the IP address to what the customer has specified. I have spent countless hours and read many PDFs and articles but cannot find the answer. It is not connected to or configured to be accessible from any external systems currently so the config needs to be done from the console at the rear of the L12 frame. I believe the LM is running OS2 warp 4.0 and LM code 527.15.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Can you get to a screen that looks like the one here?

http://www-03.ibm.com/support/techdocs/atsmastr.nsf/WebIndex/TD104217

If so, what is under the LAN options and/or "3494 Specialist" settings options?

I can get there, but I don't see and LAN options or anything that looks like I can make LAN changes.

Do you have support from IBM?

Did you go through a system assurance with IBM?

Did you do the full setup from start to finish?  Typically with something like this somebody certified by IBM (an IBM CE for example) does the initial setup and there is a unique ID that is used by the CE that has access to menus/options that a "standard" user-id does not have access to.

No support, no system assurance, yes, I did the full setup.

The frustrating thing is that the IBM manuals and guides are so comprehensive with the exception of this one last setting.

I can't seem to find the typically manuals I would find for something like this.

In the few manuals I have found I'm seeing the same thing you see.  No doc on how to change the IP address.  It could be IBM did not expect you to change it.

I'll look some more.

Have you tried to change it with the operator panel on the library?

MENU —> Settings —> Network —> Ethernet IPv4—> ENTER and change settings should be highlighted so press enter again.

That's from the IBM 3584 Tape Library operator guide but should be fairly similar on a 3494.

There are no menu items like that on this library. Perhaps the difference between the 3584 and 3494 are too different..?

Search on "3494 Tape Library Web Interfaces" Page 339.  There is a section "Configure
network" that seems to indicate you can configure the IP address for the  Master Console and an alias for the Library Manager.  This part is on page 342.

Further reading, page 343, seems to indicate that the IP address was set when the console and Library manager was installed.  My guess is since these systems have been out of marking for awhile that you got a used box and the installation process had already occurred.

Turns out that the IP can only be set by running program on one of the CDs that comes with the library.

Although no one had the solution, I'd like to thank you all for helping eliminate possibilities.
