Hany,
I have no idea what you are talking about. I answered a question
originally to Meyos and you jumped in the thread asking something
completely different. She talked about changing all the IP's(there
was no mention of NetView changing addresses). Then you asked
about changing the snmpd.conf on the endpoints. This makes no
sense to me. I do not see how all this relates.

What is your question?

Paul

Paul, are you talking about alternative option or this is some thing else 
related to another problem other than what I mentioned. We are currently 
changing the IP address of the NetView master and I guess I mixed the original 
question with what issue I have

Regards!
Hany Abadir

Hany,
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.

Paul,
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,
NV7.1.3 SP2, SOLARIS

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,
Meyos
