t530 ThinPro 6.2 Network Manager won't allow Static IP Address

HP Recommended

Good evening, we are testing the new HP t530 thin client for our applications.  We have used HP thin clients back to the t5565, t510, t520, etc. and are pretty familar with the product.

 

The new version of ThinPro 6.2.0 build 22 on the test unit has the familiar options, but in the Setup -> Network option which loads the Network Manager, there is no option to enable IPv4 and the "Static Address Configuration" options are all disabled and greyed out.

 

I have pasted a screen capture of our network manager screen at:

Setting the IP manually via /etc/network/interfaces does the trick, but our front-line staff isn't versed in how to edit configuration files and has been using this GUI for years to set static IPs on our devices.

 

Any thoughts on how to get those settings enabled?

In case anyone else ever stumbles upon this, the issue was just a misreading on the user interface.  The option for "Connection" with the value "automatic" basically means "DHCP".  Switching this to "static" enabled the static IP values.
