Change Device IP in HP-IMC

Hello,

 

I want to know how to change the device-ip in HP IMC.

 

I´ve read this post:

http://www.netopscommunity.net/forums/-/message_boards/message/39312

 

With this guide the change of the device-ip will be made.

After this, the device is pingable from IMC, but testing the SNMP-connection will result in an error.

 

I think the old device-ip is still somewhere in the dabase?

 

When I role back the device-ip-change, everything is fine and modifiing snmp-labels will work.

 

 

I hope somebody can help me.

The other way will be deleting the whole device and discover it with new ip. But then my historical data will be lost.

 

Regards,

Michael

Hello Michael,

 

This is the forum for NNMi questions. I doubt IMC experts monitor this forum. NNMi and IMC are totaly different products.

Guess you're going to have to decide what matters more then: Keeping the old data, or getting over your fear of the DB. Working with databases isn't that big a deal. Ultimately there's nothing magic about them. 

If you have spare node licenses, you could unmanage the existing device, and add a new device with the new IP. It won't match things up, but you'll still have old data there in case you want to go back and look at it.

Thank you Lindsay, I followed the instructions you left there:

I've changed 1 IP in the DB. For now, everythink is OK. I'll wait a few days before doing the 80 others.
