You use the sm_tpmgr command to reload the parameters in the following files:
name-resolver.conf file, or
Any other IP Manager user configuration filesNote:
A discovery cycle should not be in progress when you issue this command.
After you use the sm_edit utility to make a parameter change in the discovery.conf, tpmgr-param.conf, or name-resolver.conf file, you can use the sm_tpmgr command to make that change known to the target IP Manager instance without the need to restart the target server. The syntax for the sm_tpmgr command is:
sm_tpmgr -b <host>:<port> -s <IP Manager instance name> --load-conf=<configuration file name>
sm_tpmgr -b localhost:426 -s INCHARGE-AM --load-conf=user-defined-connections.conf
You have to reverse your steps because IFTypePattern-.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.222 ~6 is now in the topology. Removing IFTypePattern-.18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.222 ~6 from tpmgr-param.conf and then reloading it using sm_tpmgr does not remove it from the topology. You must actively remove it.
Try IFTypePattern-.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.222 6. (remove ~).
Then reload using sm_tpmgr.Note:
Setting it to blank IFTypePattern-.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.222 <blank>, would not remove it either. Your modification has to be reversed.
