2.7. Changing the IP-Address

The Analysis Cockpit's IP-Address can be changed in /etc/network/interfaces. The IP is configured with the address variable.

nextron@asgard-ac:~$ sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
auto ens32
iface ens32 inet static

You can now restart networking.service to apply the changes.

nextron@asgard-ac:~$ sudo systemctl restart networking.service


  • The network interface might have a different name, so pay attention to the name (in this example ens32).

  • If restarting the networking.service is throwing an error, you you can restart the server

The new IP can be applied with the command sudo systemctl restart networking

2.7.1. Verifying DNS Settings

To verify if ASGARD is using the correct DNS Server, you can inspect the file /etc/resolv.conf:

nextron@asgard-ac:~$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
search example.org

If you see errors in this configuration, you can change it with the following command:

nextron@asgard-ac:~$ sudoedit /etc/resolv.conf
