Overview

This document describes how to configure the Management Interface IP on a Palo Alto Networks device.

 

Steps

CLI:

Note: Hook up a Palo Alto Networks console cable to a Palo Alto Networks device first.

 

  1. Login to the device with admin/admin, unless you have already configured a new password.
  2. Enter configuration mode:
    > configure
  3. Use the following command to set the IP address of the management interface:
    # set deviceconfig system ip-address <ip address> netmask <netmask> default-gateway <default gateway> dns-setting servers primary <DNS ip address>
  4. Commit the changes:
    # commit
  5. Use "exit" to exit the configuration mode after commit is complete.

 

WebGUI:

Please use HTTPS://<ip address> in order to gain access to the WebGUI. Default IP is 192.168.1.1.

  1. Navigate to Device > Setup > Management, Click on the setup icon on the right hand corner and configure the Management Interface IP.

  3. Click OK and click on the commit button in the upper right to commit the changes.
    Note: If you change the management IP address, and commit, you will never see the commit complete, as the IP address will take effect at 99% and you will be disconnected. You will have to manually change the IP to the new management IP address in order to continue use of the WebGUI.
