I am just starting to work with LEM and I am experiencing problems with trying to get an IP address associated with it in Hyper-V.
I have setup the LEM instance to use the same interface that the server is using for communication to the network, with this option choosen I boot up LEM and it goes through its 'power on' phase and then it comes to a blue screen indicating there is no IP address assisnged. I even tried using another interface on the server just in case but same problem.
The only noticable item I can see right now is that when LEM powers up it looks as if it is doing some sort of DHCP discovery and I am wondering if perhaps my problem may be linked to this?
So if this is my problem, I can state that we do not use DHCP in our environment and can anyone tell me how to configure LEM to use a static IP address?
The initial installation of the LEM Appliance is configured as a DHCP client, so if you are not using DHCP, that would certainly explain the lack of an assigned address.
To assign a static address to the LEM Appliance please refer to SolarWinds KB4321 - Configuring a Static IP Address
For Step #1, substitute the Hyper-V Console, and open the console to the LEM appliance.
