If you do not have a DHCP server in your network, you will need to Set static IP address for the ESMC VA via Management console. If there is no IP address assigned, the following information will be displayed; the URL will not contain an IP address.

If no IP address is assigned, the DHCP server may not be able to assign one. Make sure there are free IP addresses in the subnet where the VA is located.
