If you are changing the address of the NetView server and have configured all your snmp agents to only allow access from the
NetView machine, then yes you will need to do that if you want
NetView to be able to communicate with the snmp agent. What
I was saying is that you can create a seedfile for discovery based
on the current netview database.

Do you mean, I don't need to edit the snmpd.conf file on each EndPoint and add 
the new IP address of the NetView Master?

If the names are not changing, you best bet will be to rediscover. You can 
create a seedfile from your current NetView by running:

ovobjprint -s > new.seed.file

and then use that as the seedfile to rediscover everything.

Hi folks,

The Network team is migrating to a new IP class, that means all
managed node IP addreses are going to be change, but their hostnames will remain the same.
Q1: ANy ideas on how I can best handle this?
Q2: Does Netview changes the IP address of a managed Node
automatically if the hostname remains the same?

Thank You,
