Setting the controller address via SSH?

Is there a way - without having to reset the mPower completely - to change the controller address stored during the initial setup?

 I've tried logging in via SSH, using the MCA-CLI to do the set-inform address, but it always jumps back to the old value.

It's under file ~/cfg/mgmt.

open that file and it'll be obvious.

This doesn't appear to survive a reboot.

I was never able to make this work via CLI or the controller UI--ended up having to perform a hard reset and configure from scratch.

after changing the IP in the mgmt file, save the file then go back to cli and type save, this will save the configuration. reboot with new IP.
