3.       Scroll down to Configure Management Network and press enter

4.       Scroll down to IPv4 Configuration and press enter.

6.       Scroll down to DNS Configuration and press enter.
7.       Enter in the DNS details that you have assigned and enter in the FQDN and press enter.
8.       Back on the Configure Management Network page press Esc to accept the changes
