Delay IP Configuration

Is there a way to set a time that a Meraki Switch will go from a DHCP to a hard coded IP? I am swapping out old switches and I want the new Meraki's to have same IP but can't take the old ones down without the new ones up. My thought is if I can swap the IPs and then turn off the port on the Meraki that is connected to the old switches. Bad idea possibly... just brainstorming here.

 

thank you!

Re: Delay IP Configuration

In most cases the IP is just used for management purposes. Can't you use a temporary address, take out the old switch and change the IP after that? That change should be bumpless. Or do you have routes pointing to its IP address?

Kind of a big deal

Re: Delay IP Configuration

If this is for the management IP - why bother making it static at all?
