Configuring the IP address using the virtual machine console

By default, GitHub Enterprise Server retrieves network settings via the dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP). If your platform supports it, or if DHCP is unavailable, you can also configure the network settings using the virtual machine console.

Note: We do not support adding additional network adapters to GitHub Enterprise Server.
