Thanks for the input.
I checked the document and found this topic -
I have MGT and MDT on separate devices.
So is there anyway to reconfigure the MGT to use the new default and
failover IP without formatting it?
In any case, how do I then tell the MDTs and OSTs that the MGT's default
and failover IPs have changed?
I cant find these in the document.
Thanks and Regards,
