Changing Name of CX4-480 SP

On one of our CX4-480s, every time I login to the system to try to change its SP Network Name, I get the following error:

"Set network properties - Failed to add the new host name to the lockbox."

I believe this system used to be part of a Celerra, if that matters.  We've managed to clear out all the private LUNs that were associated with that old pairing, and as I've never seen this error elsewhere, I can only assume it's because it used to be a celerra NS-480.

Anyone know how to get around this?

Re: Changing Name of CX4-480 SP

If the array (the block part of the array) is still connected to the Celerra (the Storage Processors LUN ports) are still connected to the Celerra, then I think you need to make the change from the Control Station.

As I'm not a Celerra person, I'd see if anyone here that knows the old Celerra will answer. You might also want to check the KB articles to see if anything pops up.

Unfortnately the control station and datamovers are loooong gone.  I was afraid of that.  We may just end up scrapping this one for parts.  I'll leave it together a few more days in case anyone has more information.  Thanks!

Are you going to the /setup page to change the name?

Tried from both the /setup menu and within Unisphere, no luck, but different errors in each.  The aforementioned error was obtained from Unisphere.  When I attempted it in /setup I got different syntax, I didn't write it down, and now the system is in pieces 😕
