reset IP address for VC Enet modules

I am trying to change the IP address for VC Enet modules. Someone set up the enclosure with addresses in 2 different subnets and I can't manage it with VCEM so I am trying to fix the addressing. From my OA under Enclosure Settings I can change the EBIPA address and apply it but the address is not getting reset. It says it will get reset when the current address expires which it says is a few minutes, but the addresses never change. How can I change the addresses for the IO modules in my enclosure?

Do You have any production activity ongoing in the enclosure ?

Try to physically remove the VC module and reinsert.

Re: reset IP address for VC Enet modules

thanks for the response- but can't really do that since there are others logged into the servers and they would lose connectivity if I removed all the VC modules.

Re: reset IP address for VC Enet modules

So You have only one VC module ?

Re: reset IP address for VC Enet modules

Carolyn,
If you look in the Virtual Connect CLI command line user guide there is a command called "set domain".
In this you can set the IP address manually.
Or what you can do is set it manually to the new address and then disable it. A "disable" will then retrigger a DHCP request. So a fixed IP should be replaced with a DHCP lease of the same value from EBIPA.
This should not interrupt data in the VCs but will disconnect you from the VC manager. (Which is expected as you are changing the IP)

User Guide... look at p15
