Not a management IP

Hello there,

I have recently changed an IP address on six HP Brocade switches, 2 x 4/64 and 4 x 4/32 and am now getting a bit of an odd issue.

If i try to browse to the DNS name on any of the switches an error page pops up saying 'This is not a Management IP'. I can browse to the IP address and it loads webtools fine.

DNS forward and reverse lookups resolve correctly.

Has anyone seen this before or have any ideas in sovling it?

Regards
Jake.

Hi Jake,

I'm not entirely sure what's happening here, but I have seen odd things with SAN switches due to the browser cacheing things.

Try clearing your browser cache, and probably more importantly the Java cache. That may resolve things.

Cheers,

Re: Not a management IP

I've looked through the release notes of 6.4.0 and its a known fault when you upgrade from 6.1.x to 6.2.x, webtools becomes unavailable via hostname, you have to use IP, until you upgrade to 6.4.0.

Thanks,
Jake.
