After move HP VC flex fabric modules to other bays I can not access VCM


I took my VC modules from bays 7,8 and moved it to bays 3,4.

Was:
bay7 IP - 192.168.128.47
bay8 IP - 192.168.128.48

Became:
bay3 IP - 192.168.128.185
bay4 IP - 192.168.128.186


Then I fixed modules IP to previous addresses through OA web interface

Became:
bay3 IP - 192.168.128.47
bay4 IP - 192.168.128.48

Now when I try open VCM (by the way my version - 4.50)

https://192.168.128.48 -> "The active Virtual Connect Manager is not at this IP address currently."

https://192.168.128.47 -> redirect to https://192.168.128.48 -> "The active Virtual Connect Manager is not at this IP address currently."

How can I fix this problem?

Power off one VC and try again
Also try using SSH instead

Re: After move HP VC flex fabric modules to other bays I can not access VCM

If it isn't possible to take control of Virtual Connect in my case how can I reset VC modules to factory defaults?

Did you try with only one VC ?

I tried with only one VC module one or another. No success.
