  • Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC)

Known Affected Releases


Description (partial)

Hostname may be reported incorrectly for certain logging features ex syslogging to an apic will still show the old hostname, not the new one.

Checking /etc/hosts will show multiple entries for the apic hostname.

admin@apic1:~> cat /etc/hosts        Leaf1        Leaf2        Leaf3        Spine1        Spine2        apic1        apic1 apic1             <<< Desired Name        apic1 apic1-test10    <<< Old name

Hostname is changed on the apic directly.
