Hi

I have a Cisco 5510 which has four interfaces.

One of the interfaces named LAN has the subnet 10.20.0.0/16. A number of firewall rules and objects are configured with this network range.

I need to change the subnet from 10.20.0.0/16 to 10.76.0.0/16.

I was think I would just search and replace the running-config for 10.20 and replace with 10.76 then TFTP it to the ASA?

Is the easiest way?

"I was think I would just search and replace the running-config for 10.20 and replace with 10.76 then TFTP it to the ASA?"

That's my suggestion.  One caveat, the config files on the device itself are saved in a Unix file format.  (The file contains carriage returns, but no line feeds, or something.)

TFTP the config to your PC, edit it with a Unix-compatible text editor like PFE32, then TFTP it back.

Do the above, but replace the startup-config instead and reload the device without committing running to startup.
