Do you know how could I hurry up the propagation of a new IP address (modified from an old one) of a switch through the fabric it is part of?

Hello Mugur. I dont entirely have a clear picture of what you are attempting to do here. I'm assuming you are using something like a RADIUS server and are trying to assign a new IP address. Is this correct? Also, how long is this action actually taking?

I have just modified some IPs (manually) on some switches in my fabric and I want to propagate this information through all other switches in the fabric.

Yes, Guldmyr, it's the Ethernet address shown by the fabricshow.
I am also using DCFM to manage the fabric and it doesn't see the new IP addresses anymore.

the new mgmt IP address should be automatically propagated to the rest of the switchs in the fabric once changed. Once said this, I have to confess that I have seen this not happening and I reckon that is probably caused by the FOS code. What is the FOS running in the switchs inthe fabric?

I'm not sure,.... is long time ago, but as fair as i remember another user ask for same problem here in the community, and as fair as i remember there is not workaround to do that, because AFAIK DCFM save the fabric config in the own db and since DCFM handle IP in the Inventory table for discovery or discovered component, this cannot be reassigned until the switch is removed from config.
The problem is, when you remover the switch, get a risk to lost the config in DCFM.
At this point, - is my opinion -, you should open a Call with Brocade Support.
