RE: [Xen-users] [XCP] Changing IP on XCP pool members.


Yes, I tried, but after changing the host IP,  XE stopped being able to contact the Xen Server process to use the host-management-reconfigure-ip or pool-emergency-reset-master.  I think I have it running again now... I found in the /etc/xensource files where the Master IP was... I updated that, restarted the process and it reconnected.  Not sure if its truly fixed, but so far seems to be working.

Did you try 'xe pool-emergency-reset-master' as George suggested?

Ahhh... I was hoping that there was a way to do this with xsconsole or xenopenmanager.  Using xe seems akin to brain surgery on oneself.

So, I did the xe host-management-reconfigure IP on the master.  When I did it on the slave, everything froze after I did the xe pif-reconfigure-ip... so now I can't talk to the slave anymore.  I can see via ifconfig that it changed IPs... and I can SSH to it, but any xe command fails with a "The server failed to handle your request, due to an internal error.  The given message may give details useful for debugging the problem.  message: INTERNAL_ERROR: [ Xmlrpcclient.Connection_reset ]"

Any way to get recontrol over the slave?  Or am I screwed?
