    if switch hardware changes but IP remains the same, will NPM detect it correctly


      Since I am a bit of NOOB to SW, I have an upcoming project to refresh a large number of Cisco switches.  What I am wondering is if NPM will detect and discover the new hardware.  I am planning on keeping the IP address the same on the switches.  Just down the stack, pull the cables, and swap out the hardware, re-attach cables.  I do not want to have to manually tell SW that I changed the hardware nor do I want to have to remove the device and then re-add the device.  Can someone provide some guidance?
