Virtual Connect (VC) and Server Serial Number Settings

Question from Stefan:

 

********

 

Question.

It is possible to switch from Static to Virtual Server Serial Number. However on a domain, even if it is in maintenance mode, that option is greyed out.

Any way to do this, apart from delete the domain and start over?

From Dan:

You have to delete all the profiles from the domain if I remember correctly to unlock those settings.

But Maintenance Mode = VCEM, so I am not sure if that’s what you meant or what differences may exist there.

And input from Dave:

 

*************

 

Dan is correct in deleting the profiles.

 

I would recommend taking a backup first, shutting down all servers(needs to be off to apply), change/select the virtual range and then you could use SSH to re-apply the profiles.

 

This is why I always recommend that a site use virtual SN, WWN and MAC addresses at the start or creating the VCDomain. They can always use the factory settings when creating a profile…
