Hi. I need to change a number of host names on some VG224 gateways and standard SRST and E1/T1 gateways.

Can anyone tell me the safest approach to doing this?

I think the 224's can be changed without effect? The standard gateways are using MGCP so i assume they can also be renamed without impact?

Yes, you can change the hostname of Voice devices. Only changing CallManager hostname is not suppported. So, once you have changed the hostname on the Router, VG224, you will have to change the same on CallManager as well and then reset the devices.

Impact: Once the router name is changed, it will unregister itself from CM and cannot be used until the same in changed on CM and reset, re-registered.

Hope this helps
