Virtual Connect IP addresses

Hi,

We are building our first blade system. While waiting for our DNS team to assign permanent addresses for our Virtual Connect devices, I manually assigned them some open temp IP addresses just so I could get into them and look around. Now that I have the permanent IP addresses assigned via the OA, it will not change them. They are hanging on to the old temp addresses I assigned them.

Anyone know how to force these things to pick up the new addresses? Short of completely pulling the power from the whole enclosure I mean...

Thanks
Nelson

Re: Virtual Connect IP addresses

I just found this note on the OA:

Note: If each interconnect has been previously given a static IP address, these EBIPA settings will not change the static IP address. If the interconnect management IP address has been configured via an external DHCP service, the EBIPA settings will override the existing DHCP address.

OK - but how do I fix this?

Hit the "Virtual Reset" button on each VC.
