How to change the hostname of a Managed Windows server.

If you need to change the hostname of a Managed Windows server, you must update this name in Address Manager so that imports, notifications, and deployments continue to function properly. During an import from a Read-Only server or a deployment to a Read-Write server, the hostname is updated automatically.

You can also update the server’s hostname in Address Manager from the Update Host Name menu item.

To update the hostname of a Managed Windows server:

  1. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the Servers tab again to ensure you are working with the Configuration information page.
  2. Under Server, click a Managed Windows server. The server’s Details tab opens.
  3. Click the server name, then select Update Host Name. The Full Hostname is updated with the new hostname information.
