esxi multiple ip bind

I'm moving an old hosting server with esxi 5.5 to a new host and Hostway said that I have to unbind all of my public ip address from the old host and bind them to the new host, can someone tell me where to I go to do that? I can only see the management IP address on NIC0.

That is correct, from the console, you can change the IP Address of the Management Interface.

Do you use any public IP Addresses in the individual Guest VMs because these may need changing as well.

Yes, I use public ip address for the guests, how do I unbind the public address from NIC0, the IP for the interface its I can do it but I don't see the block of IPs that needs to be unbind as they told me.

Okay, all the public IP Addresses used in the Guest VMs, will need changing to something else, that's maybe what is meant by ubind.

As for the Host IP Address, you just change the IP Address, there is no function called unbind.

So you will need to replace the existing public IP Address, with a new IP Address, give to you by your Hosting company.

On ESXi there is no block of IP Addresses, that you unbind...

On the black over yellow console screen you hit F2 to login with root account and password.

Select Configure Management Network

Select IPv4 Configuration

Change the IP Address
