Hi i need to change the name and the ip of a vif interface on a 7-mode netapp filer could you please advise me on the best way first i m thinking of editing /etc/hosts with wordpad by cifs acess
name:f-ammout new name f-ammout_old
vif inteface: giga0
here content of hosts file ...
old_ip f-ammout f-ammout-giga0
... so by changing it like
new ip f-ammout_old f-ammout_old-giga0
save the file with wordpad then editing rc file
content of rc file ...

vif create single giga0 e0a e0b
so changing on the rc file only the hostname like below
and save the file
then by console launching command
now changing the ip of the vif interface giga0 online to block acess to the old filer to users and do some stuff
ifconfig giga0 down
ifconfig giga0 0.0.0.0
ifconfig giga0 new_ip
ifconfig giga0 up
then after stuff done reboot the filer
can you please tell me is this a correct steps for the opération ?
