I need to re-ip about 600 servers, which is bad enough by itself, but I've automated the entire process except for one part: F5 configuration.
In all the documentation I can find, there is nothing about changing a node's IP address via the SOAP interface, it seems to be impossible. Most people suggest using sed tricks on exported config files and reimporting them, but that's much too brittle.
I'm considering doing a delete-create-re-add-to-pools dance via SOAP, but that also seems fragile. Is there a better way?
Note: I need to do this on both v10 and v11 of BigIP.
