second IP address

Hello

I need to change the IP's on several switches and routers.  What is the correct procedure for adding a second IP and then removing the old one.  I will need to do most of this remotely so I cant loose access to the equipment.

interface vlan 123

ip address 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.0 secondary

ipaddress 2.2.2.2 255.255.255.0

The correct procedure depends on whether what you're changing will cause you to lose connectivity during the change.  If it doesn't, what Leo posted is fine.  If it does, you can save the necessary configuration changes on the device flash and copy it to the running config.  (You might want to have a reload in # minutes, as a backup.)

The process I've posted is "by the book".  But if you want something cheap-dirty-and-nasty, here's what I would ALWAYS do:

  1. Open a text document and put in the lines
  • interface vlan 123
  • no ip address 1.1.1.1.255.255.255.0
  • ip address 2.2.2.2 255.255.255.0

2.  Save the file, say, BLAH.txt

3.  Next, remote into your appliance.  Important to note, if your management IP is what you are trying to change, then do what Joseph has recommended and use the "reload in 5" as a back-out solution.  If it is not, then proceed to #3. 

 

4.  Remote into the appliance and issue the command "copy tftp://<YOUR MACHINE IP Address>/BLAH.txt run".  Warning:  DO NOT copy the file to your startup-config.  

 

5.  If everything goes well, cancel the reload and save the config.

I just want to warn, that Leo's step 4, if being done across the interface supporting remote access, might disconnect mid process.

To avoid that, again, copy the config snippet to local device flash and then copy from local flash to running config.  This insures statements being applied are not impacted by the interface being modified.
