Change Splunk IP

Path Finder

How do I successfully change the Splunk instance (all in one indexer, search head, webUI etc) VM's IP address?

Since Splunk 7 - 8, the Splunk install automatically uses the VMWare admin interface making it so I can only log into Splunk via the VM.

I follow the Bind IP instructions here : to get it to where I can now log into the webUI via the IP I specify, but this breaks Splunk. Upon reboot I get a 500 service not found. IP and ports are as specified when I reboot Splunk, but the webUI will no longer work and I have to restore from a snapshot.

Path Finder

I'm fairly certain with Splunk 7.3.1 following the BindIP instructions brakes the webUI.

When I clear out the stanza to bind the IP I can log back into splunk again from within the VM (as Splunk is choosing the virbr0 interface for some reason).
