changing ip of a cam on civs 4500 and on VSOM

Hi @ all,

We using VSM 6.3.1 with several series 4500 (firmware 2.0.0) cams. I need to renumber the ip of two cams.

first question: How can i change the ip address within VSOM, is there another way than changing it within the sql-db ?

second: I can't change the IP within the the webfrontend of the 4500 cam ( using IE7). The cam claims the following:"This IP has been used in the subnet", but the given IP is unused!

Thanks!

changing ip of a cam on civs 4500 and on VSOM

Hi,

here is an update:

I found a table within the sql-db:

mysql> select * from bas_encoders where id=1;

+----+------+-------------+--------------+------------+--------+--------+-------+---------------+----------+----------+---------------------+------------+---------------------+------------+--------+

| id | name | description | ip_address   | type       | device | status | state | requires_auth | username | password | created             | created_by | updated             | updated_by | active |

+----+------+-------------+--------------+------------+--------+--------+-------+---------------+----------+----------+---------------------+------------+---------------------+------------+--------+

|  1 | nmc  | NULL        | 172.23.23.51 | cisco_4500 |      1 |      1 |     1 |             1 | admin    | xxxxx  | 2010-10-20 10:14:30 |          1 | 2010-11-16 11:37:56 |          1 |      0 |

+----+------+-------------+--------------+------------+--------+--------+-------+---------------+----------+----------+---------------------+------------+---------------------+------------+--------+

1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Are there any traps i can avoid if changing the ip there ?

I would highly recommend avoiding any direct SQL modifications to *any* tables.  While this may be a benign change in the record itself, and it would likely show in the UI that the IP has changed, I doubt this would actually change the running proxy information within the VSMS component.

... I believe those are defined in an XML file located at /usr/BWhttpd/conf/proxy/ ....

Of course, absolutely none of this is sanctioned by Cisco TAC, I'm sure.

Regardless, I'm curious as to whether or not you are able to accomplish this :-)

Cheers!

Also, we've ran into the same UI issue with changing IPs on the 4000 series.  I believe a colleague was the last to encounter it, and i believe it's a bug.

I'll have to check to see if it's been addressed in the 2.3.1 firmware (which is available BTW, in case you weren't aware).

Have a good weekend!

Hi Scott,

your hint did it!!! With Version 2.3 of the 4500 cams it is possibble to change the cam ip. Thanks for that.

Unfortunately i wasn't able to change the ip within VSM. I tried to the change your suggested xml and all statements regarding the ip within the sql-db. So i deleted the the cams and reconfigured them within vsom. Perhaps changing the ip is an upcoming feature.
