Re: renaming a switch whilst in production

Hello,

Yes you may rename a switch non-disruptively.

Example:

rtp9513-1-23A-01# conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

rtp9513-1-23A-01(config)# switchname Test-Name

Test-Name(config)# switchname rtp9513-1-23A-01

rtp9513-1-23A-01(config)# exit

rtp9513-1-23A-01# copy run start

[########################################] 100%

rtp9513-1-23A-01#

Thanks,

Nikhil

Re: renaming a switch whilst in production

Be advised that renaming a switch does generate an RSCN, unless the switch is configured to not do so. By design, the RSCN being generated should cause no impact.
