acp.[domain,netmask] secret decoder ring needed

I need to change the IP used by ACP.  Unfortunately, in 7.3.5P1 at least, this seems annoyingly obscure.  Specifically,

netapp1b*> options acp
acp.domain                   16099520  
acp.enabled                  on        
acp.netmask                  16580607  
acp.port                     e4a    

Exactly what version of Rosetta Stone do I need to understand what the 'acp.domain' and 'acp.netmask' are?  Or, rather, how to put the one I want to use in this format?

When I first enabled the option it ran through a wizard, but I cannot seem to find a way to restart that wizard.  "options acp.enabled off" and "options acp.enabled on" do not do the trick.

The IP/netmask used originally above was 192.168.254.0 and 255.255.252.0, but I want to change it.

Re: acp.[domain,netmask] secret decoder ring needed

according to acp.domain, it is set to 192.168.245, not to 192.168.254. 192.168.254 would be 16689344.

Convert dotted-decimal to 32 bit integer by placing bytes right-to-left and you get option values. I.e. 192.168.254 == 0xc0.0xa8.0xfe => 0xfea8c0 == 16689344.

I do not know if it safe to play with these options. But of course we do need some official procedure to change ACP network.

Re: acp.[domain,netmask] secret decoder ring needed

You should be able to run the following commands, and it will run you back through the ACP setup process:

filer1> options acp.enabled off

filer1> options acp.enabled on

After re-enabling ACP, the setup process should prompt you on whether or not you want to make changes to the curent config.

Re: acp.[domain,netmask] secret decoder ring needed

This encoding is strange but it's works fine.

For 192.168.1.0,  I use acp.domain = 16777215

For 255.255.255.0, I use acp.netmask = 108736

The official procedure from our technical account manager :

For Data ONTAP 7.3.x:

A slight correction to the above, you got the domain and netmask numbers the wrong way around.

It should be:

for ACP domain:  192.168.1.0,   use  acp.domain  108736

for ACP netmask: 255.255.255.0, use  acp.netmask 16777215

Below shows the change, of course this should be done to both controllers on your filer and it takes a minute or 2 for "ACP Connectivity Status: Full Connectivity" to be restored.
