Products (1)

  • Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC)

Known Affected Releases

1.1(2h)

Description (partial)

Symptom:
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
10.0.208.64
10.0.88.92        Leaf1
10.0.88.95        Leaf2
10.0.88.128        Leaf3
10.0.88.93        Spine1
10.0.88.94        Spine2
127.0.0.1        apic1
10.0.0.1        apic1 apic1             <<< Desired Name
10.0.0.1        apic1 apic1-test10    <<< Old name

Conditions:
Hostname is changed on the apic directly.
