OA, blade ( ILO) and VC IP change approach. URGENT PLESE...

Hello, can someone please confirm the approach to change OA, individual blade and virtual connect IP? My proposed approach is as follows. Please confirm you see any issues.

 

Note: From networking point of view, all IPs are going to be in same subnet. We are configuring two switch ports with new subnet and as part of the implementation we will connect 2x OA to new ports.

 

Step1: Change OA IP.

-          Login to HP OA.

-          Navigate to enclosure TCP/IP settings

-          Change standby on-board administrator ip to new one.

-          Connect network cable to newly allocated port

-          Make sure that able to ping new IP.

-          Failover OA to standby.

-          Change active OA IP to new one.

-          Make sure that able to ping new IP.

-          Fail back OA to its actual active OA.

Step 2: Change individual blade IP.

-          Login to HP OA.

-          Navigate to Enclosure Bay IP Addressing

-          Change Device bay IP address to new ones according as allocated.

-          Make sure that able to ping new IPs.

Steps 3: Change VC IP.

-          Login to HP OA

-          Navigate to enclosure TCP/IP settings- Interconnect bays

-          Change Device bay 1,2,3 and 4 IPs to new as pre allocated.

-          Make sure that able to ping new IPs.

I managed to change IPs successfully and documented above steps with some other considerations to help others.
