Changing CiscoWorks host

We're replacing our old CiscoWorks(CW) servers.

We're aiming to rebuild our new Solaris servers and install CW on them in our testing environment and then transfer them to the live environment.


To be shifted to the live network the servers will have to have their hostnames and ip addresses changed.


Will this change of host/ip adversely affect CW? Are we better off doing another clean solaris/CW install after the servers have been patched to the live network?

If you change the hostname/IP, you need to do a few things in CiscoWorks for that change to be effective. See http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/rtrmgmt/cw2000/cw2000_d/cs303/usrguide/diagnos.htm#wp1078582 for the list of steps. The hostname change procedure works, so it's really up to you which you prefer.
