Changing IP address breaks searching

Hi there,

I found that if IP address of graylog vm is changed it stops functioning. even if while setting if the VM is on DHCP and later if we change it to static it just breaks in the searching part.

What could be the issue?

Heyo @blason,

how are you addressing your Graylog in the configuration files? Via IP-addresses or via hostnames? If you’re using IP-addresses inside the configs, these obviously need to be reconfigured when the IP of the host running Graylog or any other part (Elasticsearch, MongoDB) changes. :slight_smile:


if you use the Graylog VM you need to run graylog-ctl reconfigure after the server gets a new IP.

I see that could be the issue. Thanks for pointing it out.
