CCM 5.1 hostname change?

Unanswered Question
Mar 14th, 2008


I know changing the hostname was not supported in previous versions, however does anyone know if it's possible with 5.1?? If not, any clever ideas for accomplishing this?


I have this problem too.

Hi Ashley,

Still a "no go" until CCM 6.1(2);

Prior to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1(2), you cannot change the host name of either the publisher node or subscriber node after it is installed. If you must apply a new host name to a server, you can delete the server from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration (System > Server) and then reinstall the server with a new hostname. Also, be aware that a DRS backup that you take from a server with a particular hostname cannot be restored on a server (either a publisher or subscriber node) with a different hostname, even after you reinstall that node.

Hope this helps!
