[5400] Replace OOBM address

This may be a weird question - I have a 5400 that I am currently in the process of setting up for future use.

 

At this point it is connected only via its' OOBM port, I am not on location and I need to change the OOBM interface network.

If I had direct access I would either use console or add a different IP on one of the vlans connected with an uplink to allow me to change the OOBM address, but currently I lack that ability.

 

Running

# oobm ip address [addr]/[mask]

returns:

Cannot configure more than one IPv4 address on OOBM interface.

 

Instead of changing the address, for obvious reasons I can't run "no oobm ip address" at this stage.

 

So that leaves me with the question how can I fix this?

Can I edit the boot-config and reboot the switch?

I think that approach is going to be your only viable option (especially if you're acting remotely to CLI in absence of any remote access capability to local serial console port in case you need or just in case you accidentally lock out): upload a startup configuration which should include the changed OoBM IP Address and force the switch to reboot/reload without - if even asked - saving the running configuration (the request to save the runnning configuration into the startup configuration shall be proposed in case the running configuration was changed on the switch and not saved before your modified startup configuration was uploaded and before the reload/reboot). At reload/reboot the Switch will load the uploaded and updated startup configuration and you should be able to connect to the Switch by using the new OoBM IP Address.
