LMS 2.6 and devices IP change

Unanswered Question
Jan 21st, 2008

Hi all,

We have change the IP address of our devices from an IP range 172.16.*.* to an IP range 192.168.*.*.

I wish to know what are the best practices in order to keep all the informations of my switch in LMS (configuration) and to keep only the new address and not the oldest in LMS.


I have this problem too.

If you have the old IP addresses already entered into DCR your best bet will be to export the DCR device list to CSV, modify the IP addresses in the file, then re-import the file overwriting what is in DCR. This way, all your device history will remain.

If, however, you do not have any IP addresses configured in DCR (i.e. just hostnames), and all of the hostnames will remain the same, all you need to do is restart dmgtd after the switchover.
