We have to change the name and the IP address of a large amount of switches, which are monitored with Spectrum. We don't want to delete and recreate them, because we want to keep the graphical topology as we currently have it arranged. We plan to do that via script, using the REST API.
What attributes do we need to change and what steps are recommended?
Release: All Supported Releases
Component: SPCCSS - SpectroSERVER Core
will also need to be changed to reflect the new network address. This attribute is used for IP Redundancy but should be done as a best practice, even if IP Redundancy functionality is not enabled.
The above changes will trigger other attribute changes automatically, e.g.
IP Redundancy is enabled by default. If Spectrum loses contact with the IP address populated in the
0x12d7f and IP Redundancy is enabled, Spectrum will try to regain contact with the device using the ip addresses listed in the RedundancyPreferredAddresses attribute id 0x12d84.
Reference the "IP Redundancy Subview" section in the Spectrum documentation for more information.
