I just installed openfire on a base centos install under vmware. I connected to our AD and all the users are showing up and able to login. Right now i am just testing it and using dhcp. I know have a static ip that i need to assign. I have already added it to dns. I tried this last week but after i changed everything i wasnt able to login to the admin console because i still think it had the old ip stored in there. What is the best way for updating the ip for this. Would i just shut down the server, change the ip on the linux box, reboot the boot, power it back on and start the openfire service. Would that work? Luckily i took a backup of the vmware so i restored it when i couldnt log in and was able to get it to work with the old ip address.
I have it so i can login and administrator but its by the current ip address.
hey there. I just checked my openfire.xml and i did manually create the ip address when i setup the openfire server. So what do i need to do with this. When i shut down the server, change the ip address on the linux box, modify the openfire.xml, reboot the server, start the openfire service. Should this work???
well last time when i tried to update the ip address, i was never able to log back in to the admin console. what do i need to do to make sure i can log back into it. I added the new ip address/my user name under this.
I also left the old ip address/username in there too.
hey having problems. So i changed everything above and able to log back in to the console and log in to spark. Now i am still having issues with the old ip address for the server name in the admin console.
It is still showing the old ip address and when i go to change it to the new address, this old one comes back.

Server Name: 192.168.250.242
So it looks like you are using IP as a name for your server. You can’t change xmpp.domain value easily, so one option is just to leave it this way, or i don’t know what to do. Never has changed domain name before. Probably you also have to change every user’s information to correspond the new name.
hey i did find one other issue. now when i try to login to http://192.168.250.120:9090 it wont load. I found out when i reran the setup, i would get java errors at the end so i changed the port to 9092 and 9093 and now the admin console comes up with :9092. Is there a way for me to get it back to the 9090 or should i just leave it at the 92 as its working just fine now.
