Dell PowerConnect CLI – Change Management IP

I locked myself out of the UI on one of my Dell switches today. I spent 20 minutes looking through Dell manuals until I found the answer.

To change the management IP of a Dell switch:

Console# configure

Console (config)# interface vlan 1

Console (config)# no ip address (Removes the existing IP)

Console (config)# ip address [IP] [subnet mask]

Console (config)# end

Console# copy run start
