Agent Configuration - Interface Management

Description

By default, a NetBeez Agent comes configured with DHCP enabled. Once an Agent is plugged into the network, has obtained a DHCP address, and reports back to the central server, you can assign a static IP address. It is recommended that permanent monitoring Agents are configured with a static IP address in order to increase resiliency in case of issues with the network and/or DHCP servers.
 
Warning: Before changing the IP settings on an Agent, it is recommended that you pause all the tests running on that Agent. Once the reconfiguration of the IP settings has been successfully completed, all the paused tests can be resumed. 
 
Note:  Interface Management settings are not available for Docker container Agents.
