Solution : Changing domain name on resolv.conf and restarting dnsmasq service

Commands :

  • dcli -C cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.confORIG -> backup resolv.conf file on all nodes 

  • vi resolv.conf -> change domain name on  resolv.conf 

  • dcli -C -f /etc/resolv.conf -d /etc/resolv.conf -> copy changed resolv.conf to all nodes 

  • dcli -C service dnsmasq restart -> restart dnsmasq service on all nodes

  • Execute show command , you will see that rule is empty like rule below .
  • /SP/alertmgmt/rules/15
  • Targets: Properties: type = snmptrap level = disable destination = destination_port = 0 community_or_username = public snmp_version = 1 testrule = (Cannot show property)
  • Set empty rule with configuration of ip that will be dropped .
  • -> set level=minor Set ‘level’ to ‘minor’-> set destination=yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy 
    Set ‘destination’ to ‘yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy’

    -> set destination_port=zzz 
    Set ‘destination_port’ to ‘zzz’

    -> set snmp_version=2c
    Set ‘snmp_version’ to ‘2c’


  • Execute command below , ip address will be changed .
