Hi,


If i change the IP address of CiscoWorks server in later stage whether it will effect the server performance??


Note: I do understand that all other networking device ip's will need to be changed also. My specific requirement is on CWLMS server performance after changing of the ip adress.

AFAIK, CiscoWorks uses hostname for most of the communication. Only devices need to point to the new IP address. However, after changing the IP address, you must reboot the system on a Solaris server and restart the Daemon Manager on a Windows server. This is to make the changes effective.


To change the hostname of the CiscoWorks Server, you need to update several files, and reboot the server. It's a longer procedure.


For more details you can have a look at the FAQ:

And have a look at the following in it:

- How do I change the IP Address of the CiscoWorks Server after installing it, or after running it for a while?

- Do I need to change the CiscoWorks configuration after changing the IP address?

- How do I change the Hostname of the CiscoWorks Server after installing it, or after running it for a while?


Hth!
