LDD 4.5.x and 4.6.1: How to Change the IP Address on a Configuration 1 System


The article describes how to change the IP address of a Configuration 1 System.

Why is this important?

If an incorrect IP address or fully qualified domain name is used when installing a Configuration 1 System, or the IP address of the computer on which the components of a Configuration 1 System are installed changes for any reason, then the IP address of the components can be changed without reinstallation.


  1. From the command line on the computer where all components are installed, navigate to the Lexmark\Solutions\InstallHelper folder in the location where the components are installed. The default installation directory is C:\Program Files\Lexmark\Solutions\InstallHelper.

  2. Type update-addr.bat -hostname, where hostname is the fully qualified domain name (FQDN)of the local computer, or type update-addr.bat -ip, where ip is the IP address of the local computer, and then press Enter.

  3. To change the desktop shortcut's IP/Hostname address, perform the following steps in the order listed:

      • On the desktop of the computer where the components are installed, right-click the Lexmark Management Console (LMC) icon, and then click Properties.
      • Click Find Target.
      • In the folder that appears, right-click the shortcut lmc, and then click Properties.
      • Change the IP address or host name part of the URL to the new IP address or host name of the local computer.
      • The complete URL should be http://hostname:9780/lmc/, where hostname is the host name or IP address of the computer in which the components are installed.
