Change OA IP Address

Hi, Is there a way to change Onboard administrator IP address (for what ever reasons,, say we are migrating the Enclosures to new data center and using plugging new networks) without resetting any configuration? Will there be any impact to the existing configurations (VCM etc)?

My understanding is this will make VCM unreachable and we will have to wipe out and start from scratch. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!

Re: Change OA IP Address

That is not the case, you can change the IP addresses without losing any configurations.  I would suggest changing the OA IP address just before it goes offline (make sure to set the new subnet and gateway), otherwise you will have to plug into it directly with a crash cart.  After it is online you can change the IP addresses of the interconnects or you could change them just before you take the system down.
