How to - Edit Isilon IP Address in Eyeglass



Overview of Steps

IMPORTANT!

During this procedure, there will be an Eyeglass service interruption.  Any configuration items added / updated / deleted on the source will not be synchronized to the target until the procedure is completed.

  1. Prepare Eyeglass for the IP address change by disabling configuration replication.  

  2. Change the IP Address on the Isilon Cluster itself.

  3. Update Eyeglass for the new IP Address information.

Prerequisite: Networking between Eyeglass and the new IP address must be setup.

  1. Enable Eyeglass configuration replication.

      2. Scroll down the Job list and confirm that all Jobs have the State User Disabled.


Note: If a Job is already in Policy Disabled state because the related SyncIQ policy is disabled, it will remain in this state. Eyeglass also does not run configuration replication for Jobs that are Policy Disabled so this state is OK to proceed with the Edit IP address procedure.

    2. Select Enable/Disable.

  1. Disable replication task using Eyeglass shell

    1. Open the Jobs window and select the Running Jobs menu.  If there is a Configuration Replication Job with Status RUNNING, wait for this job to complete.  When it is completed, the Status will be FINISHED.  

    2. Once Configuration Replication Job is FINISHED, click Eyeglass Main Menu.

    3. Click Eyeglass Shell.  The Eyeglass Shell window opens.

    4. Log in as admin

    5. Enter the following command: igls admin schedules set --id Replication --enabled false

    6. Open the Jobs window again and select the Running Jobs menu. Again, confirm that there is no Configuration Replication Job with Status RUNNING.  If there is,  wait for this job to complete.  When it is completed, the Status will be FINISHED.
