Challenge: How to load AMS Virtual Machine if there is no DHCP server available
Step 1: Set AMS network settings to Host-Only adapter
Step 2: Navigate to your network adapter settings, set VBox network adapter to 192.168.56.xxx (this should already be set)
Step 3: Start AMS 2.0 from virtual box, IP should be 192.168.56.101
Step 4: Use a browser to navigate to 192.168.56.101, Login with admin, admin and setup AMS as normal
Step 5: Click your initials, click Server Settings, navigate to Network
Step 6: Change from DHCP to static IP, and assign IP address, if using Atlona gear with default static IP of 192.168.1.xxx, then set the IP address to 192.168.1.xxx, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Note: You can leave the gateway and DNS settings blank
Step 7: Save Settings, Accept and continue, AMS will now reboot
Step 8: Verify AMS has new IP address that you specified, once verified, power down AMS 2.0
Step 9: Change the VBox network adapter back to bridged adapter
Under Adapter Settings: Change VBox IP address to range set in AMS, 192.168.1.xxx, DO NOT set this to same IP as AMS
Make sure you network adapter is configured for 192.168.1.xxx IP range, DO NOT set this to the same IP as AMS
Start AMS 2.0
Navigate to new IP of AMS that you set in step 6.
Login using the credentials set in step 4.
Notes: You can no longer use a DHCP server for AMS. Should you need to use a router and DHCP server at a later date, you will need to reverse all these settings or delete Vbox and reload AMS on your computer.
