Changing RBridge-ID-to-WWN mapping for bare-metal configuration

If you have configured the RBridge-ID-to-WWN mapping for a bare-metal switch, but have not yet plugged the switch into the cluster, you can still change the RBridge ID that will be assigned to the bare-metal switch.

Do the following on the principal switch to change the mapping:

  1. Use the no preprovision command to remove a currently configured mapping. For example, if you already ran the command preprovision rbridge-id 5 wwn 10:11:12:13:14:15:16:17, and you want to remove this configuration, enter the following command:
    switch (config)# no preprovision rbridge-id 5 wwn 10:11:12:13:14:15:16:17
    NOTE
    To display the currently configured RBridge-ID-to-WWN mapping, enter the show running-config preprovision command. To update only the WWN and not the RBridge ID, use the preprovision command with the RBridge ID whose WWN mapping you wish to change. For example, if you have already configured RBridge ID 5 to map to a WWN of 10:11:12:13:14:15:16:17, and you want to change the WWN to 11:11:11:11:11:11:11:11, you would enter the following command: preprovision rbridge-id 5 wwn 11:11:11:11:11:11:11:11 command.
  2. Enter the preprovision command containing the new RBridge ID-to-WWN mapping. For example, if you now want RBridge ID 6 to be assigned to the bare-metal switch referenced in the previous step, enter the following command:
    switch (config)# preprovision rbridge-id 6 wwn 10:11:12:13:14:15:16:17
    NOTE
    To delete all configured RBridge-ID-to-WWN mappings, enter the no preprovision rbridge-id command. This removes all mappings under the previous container, so that the show running-config preprovision command will return "% No entries found."
