is there a way to change hostnames of several cisco switches at once using CCS? 

we have many switches that require a host name change and i was wondering if there was a script available or someone has insight, that can do many at once?

one at a time, yeah i go that.

Yes, you can do that in a CCS script.  The trick is that the prompt will change and the script will error out waiting for the old prompt.  So you need to use the Action-Prompt or Trigger-Prompt directive.


If the new names follow a pattern, you could just hard code that in the script.  Otherwise, you could enter the old and new names in a CSV file and import that as a List.
