Does hammer cli support rebuild of vms using same hostname & IP but with different OS version
I am trying to build solution in my POC environment where i have to rebuild (in-place) multiple hosts in one go with different OS by keeping same hostname/IP.
I created bash script where i am passing hostname but somehow i can only create new host with new name.
Also, trying to keep same esxi host on which vm will re-build.
If anyone come across such scenario please suggest.

HI, if you run the update action on the host with the new OS it will also rebuild the host.
Yes, @Leos Stejskal, i can do host update from UI , however it will do one server at a time.
i am looking for something to re-build multiple server with newer version of OS by keeping same IP /hostname/HW config except OS.
I am trying to do via hammer but when i tried to run it just rebuild with same OS (L7) instead of L8.
