How to set up the network and change the hostname

To set up the network and change the hostname of your senhasegura VM, follow these steps:

  1. Start a SSH session using senhasegura’s administrative user.

  2. To change the default hostname of your senhasegura instance, run the following command replacing <new_hostname> with your desired hostname:

    $ sudo orbit hostname <new_hostname>

    Modifying the hostname is essential for generating a valid application activation code.

  3. Run the following command to set up the primary network interface:

    $ sudo orbit network
  4. You’ll be prompted to enter the following information:

    • IP Address: enter the desired IP address.
    • Netmask: enter the netmask address.
    • Gateway: enter the gateway address.
  5. Ensure the details are entered correctly and type Y. Upon successful configuration, a confirmation message will be displayed, indicating a successful setup.


    If you need to set up additional network interfaces, run the command sudo orbit network interface configuration and follow the prompts to configure any additional network interfaces as required.

  6. Once you’ve completed the network interface configurations and changed the hostname, reboot the senhasegura instance:

    $ sudo reboot
