Messed up the install, need to manually configure.

Hi,

During the install I added the wrong IP address.
That was quickly corrected with the vaconfig utility.

Then I tried to add a printer, no luck. It just said that the print manager was not loaded even though the mobile console claimed the service was running.
After several attempts I saw that the Print Manager just had the dns name and 127.0.0.2 to it and I finally deleted it. That was stupid I know.
I created a new Print Manager with ip address instead of dns running on 172.20.0.35 and now I could create a printer but it does not show up in the mobile console.

Anyway, I have succeedwed in messing it up bigtime.
Do I need to delete the appliace and deploy a new or is it possible to just run the initial config?
I am happy with everything being erased, that is no problem. My issue is that I don't really have access to the vmware environment so it would be easier for me to just run a config on the current mashine.


Thanks.

Better to delete it and reinstall from scratch. Creating an iprint
manager is not supported and it will cause you the issue that printers
will not be available on appliance console.

Yes,

From your answer I assume there is no way of reinstalling on the current machine and that the only option is to deploy a new appliance.
This is no production so I'm not concerned about supported or not, more interested in how it really works behind the curtain.
