Can you change the IP address of a vSZ?

We have a minimally licensed demo Virtual Smart Zone controller in our production network and would like to move it our lab network.  Is there a way to change the IP address of the controller?  We moved the controller VM from the production VMware environment into the lab VMware environment. The 'setup' command from the console doesn't seem to work and I don't see any other commands to allow the change.

Hi Jim,

Setup command will not work once vSZ setup wizard is finished.

Please refer below command to change the vSZ IP.

ruckus> en 
ruckus# config 
ruckus(config)# interface  
ruckus(config-if)# ip address
ruckus(config-if)#end

ruckus(config)end

ruckus#

To verity:

show running-configuration interface

Example output:

ruckus# show running-config interface

Will registered APs pull the new controller IP address with a config refresh/pull? OR will registered APs need to be given the new address via SSH "et scg ip" and/pr DHCP options? 

The method will depend on how you have them set up to find the controller, but you will need to modify the APs to be able to find the new IP once you have changed it.

Hi @enrique_malacara ,

Do you have a singe node cluster or multi node?

Changing controller IP will not push it to the APs. Even changing the IP of controller will disconnect all the APs.

As explained by Jim, you have to modify controller IP info on AP and there are three ways.

1. using "set scg ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"

2. Using DHCP option 43

3. Using DNS entry
