Is customer allowed to change IP address of Exalytics box by himself?

Question:

Is customer allowed to change IP address of Exalytics box by himself?

Answer:

Changing the IP address or host name of an Exalytics machine is not officially supported, or recommended.Weblogic, EM has dependency on the IP address and may not function properly after the IP address is changed. You may have to reinstall the entire apps after you have changed the IP address.

Weblogic, and the OBIEE install do have some dependency on the networking configuration but typically that is the hostname, rather than the IP. So, this means that it should be possible to change the IP address of the host, but NOT the hostname. However, if the network was not setup properly and in Enterprise Manger you see references to IP addresses rather than the hostname then there may be a problem such as that described above

In order to change the IP address, we would recommend that the procedure is carried out by someone familiar with network configuration, they could either use the exalytics network config script or directly edit the various network config files appropriate to the network port that the IP is being changed on.
