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:
- 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.
- Under Server, click a Managed Windows server. The server’s Details tab opens.
- Click the server name, then select Update Host Name. The Full Hostname is updated with the new hostname information.
