Micro Focus Filr Content Editor Server


The Filr Content Editor server's default Docker IP address is in the network range of 172.17.x.x or 172.16.x.x network. There are environments where this IP range will not work. How does one change the Docker IP address on a Filr CE server?


  • Copy/Paste the following string of commands into a text editor.
    • echo "{" > /etc/docker/daemon.json;echo "  \"bip\":\"\"" >> /etc/docker/daemon.json;echo "{"  >> /etc/docker/daemon.json;sh /opt/novell/base_config/
  • Replace with the needed IP address and subnet mask.
  • Copy/Paste the modified (with correct IP and subnet mask) into an SSH session to the Content Editor server

Additional Information

After following the RESOLUTION steps, the contents of the /etc/docker/daemon.json file will look like this:
  "bip": ""

Note: The IP address and subnet mask will be different.
