Is changing the name of a f/c switch disruptive?

Hi

I need to correct a typo in the name of one of our Fibre Channel switches.

What I'd like to know, please, is whether or not doing:

xxx:admin> switchname thenewname

is disruptive to the SAN in any way.

Cheers,

Richard.

Hi Richard,

the new name will be communicated to the other switches but this is not disruptive in any way.

Hope this helps,

Linar

Linar,

Thanks for the response.  Switch name has now been changed with no problems at all.

Cheers,

Richard.
