Brocade 4700 Change Ip Address


I've two ds4700M switches (emc branded) and I need to change them the ip address. Do I lost Fiber connectivity during this process? Do I need to reboot them?

Thanks in advance

Re: Brocade 4700 Change Ip Address

You can change the IP address of the switch through the serial port with the ipconfig command or change it throught the GUI. I f you change it throught the GUI you will lose ethernet connectivity until you change the URL to the new IP address. The fabric will not be inrterupted and you do not need to reboot.
