Hi there,

My VPC provider updated the IP address of my zennode after a restart .
How do i update the existing node with the new IP address?

Hi there. In case you’ve not resolved this as yet, suggest the following.

Google for the procedure for changing the machine’s IP address for your distribution. Once you have found the process, update DNS and verify its current, stop zend, perform the procedure, and reboot the box. Give it a few minutes then check the status in the global node list.

As an aside, I’m not sure it’s really necessary to reboot the box but I believe it’s a cleaner process to have the OS take care of terminating and restarting the services. It should be offline for only a few minutes so you shouldn’t get dinged. Hope this helps.
