How to modify management network in production environnement ?

My PS4100 use actually 192.168.127.0/24 management network. I want to use 192.168.128.0/24.

How to do that without interrupt production ?
PS4100 are in a datacenter and I would do that remotely. Is it possible ?

Thanks

RE: How to modify management network in production environnement ?

Hello,

 You can change the Mangement address w/o interfering with any servers. If you have remote serial access you can do it from the CLI.  Even if you have to connect a server or laptop to the array.

  In your case if you open up the netmask temporarily, you'll be able to change the physical port IP address then change the Management Well Know address.  Finally change the netmask back to /24.  

 I would still have the serial access configured and tested before you attempt the change.  Just in case something goes amiss, you can still access the array and make changes. 

 Regards,

Don
