Looking for confirmation on the procedure/best practice to remove a SM from CBRS and add it back in from a different location/AP.
We are running Maestro on-premise, version 2.4.1-r10 using cnMaestro as HTTP Proxy for our CBRS migration. Our test setup consists of 2 450 APs and 3 450 SMs on 16.2.1 firmware, all in-house.
Current instructions for SM removal consist of deleting the CPI data from the SM and rebooting, then Deleting the device from CBRS management tool.
The issue we are facing comes when we try to re-add the SM back into CBRS on a different sector. After performing the above steps to remove the SM from CBRS, we are receiving an error "The provided parent mac is mismatching with existing parent mac value" when attempting to add the SM back into CBRS in a different sector. Once the SM is removed, the domain proxy view shows the device as Registered:No under the original sector and only has a Deregister button.
We are able to re-add the SM back into the original sector without issue, then move the SM to the new sector by changing the CC in the SM. The concern is, what happens when we are not able to connect the SM to the original AP, as would be the case if the SM is uninstalled from one customer location and then reinstalled in a different location/town.
Any assistance or insights appreciated.
