Am I right to think that changing the DEFAULT GATEWAY is non-disruptive?

We're reconfiguring our network here are moving to a new firewall/router system.

Our HF20H network configuration needs the DEFAULT GATEWAY to be changed to the new one.

Am I right in thinking that assuming that I enter the new IP address correctly that this is non-disruptive?

Are you in the management network?
Is any of the data network on the other side of the gateway?
Are you changing just the default gateway?

As long as the current gateway is not between the Nimble and either you or servers, you'll be fine.

Hi Sheldon,

Thank you for the reply. I talked to some Nimble enginners at a UK Nimble users event and they too confirmed that, with the prerequisites you mention, the change can be non-disruptive.

I was able to satify the prerequisites and the change was non-disruptive.
