Introduction:

Sometimes a MAC_Address needs to be repopulated in CA Spectrum but the reconfiguration option does not read and/or update the MAC_Address attribute. 

Question:

How can Spectrum reread a devices MAC_ADDRESS?

Answer:

Starting in CA Spectrum 10.2.3 (due out in Q1 of 2018) there will be a CLI update action code (0x10170) that can be used on the model.

For example:

 

spec01> cd /usr/CA/spectrum/vnmsh

spec01> ./connect

spec01> ./show models | grep SwCiscoIOS

0x1000089   Sim5126  0x2100b2    SwCiscoIOS

spec01> ./update action=0x10170 mh=0x1000089
