Question Massive Hostname Change


The main reason I am using SecureCRT is because I need to change the hostname (and interface descriptions) for over more than 5000+ Cisco routers/switches in a practical and "fast" way.

It seems that the best method for completing this task is using the VanDyke's example script "RunCommandsOnMultipleHostsAndLogResults.vbs" which allows to connect to a list of IP Addresses (or hostnames) and run a list of commands. However this list of commands (in my case) must be unique for each IP address, due the configuration of different hostnames. That is, executing a unique set of commands suck as #hostname HOSTA, for IP_1; then #hostname HOSTB, for IP_2 and so on...

If you have any suggestion for this requirement, I will be more than grateful.

Many thanks in advance,

Ruben D. Colmenares
