No - changing hostnames is not supported. You would basically have to rebuild the entire cluster.

Hi Robert,

This change is now supported in CCM 6.1(2) but no previous versions of CCM;

Changing the Hostname of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Servers

Starting with this release, you can change the hostname of the first node or any subsequent nodes in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster. You can only change the hostname of the first node from a subsequent node. The Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration user interface populates the hostname field on the Ethernet Configuration window and the Publisher Configuration window with the existing values. You can change the IP address or hostname of servers using the set network cluster publisher ip or set network cluster publisher hostname CLI commands.


Caution Resetting the hostname will cause your system to reboot and you may lose connectivity with the first node and the network. Before attempting to change the hostname of a Cisco Unified Communications Manager server, refer to the Changing the IP Address and Host Name for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1(2).

Hope this helps!

This seem to work very well in 6.1.2. We just changed it for a client and no issues, except, when we installed IPCC Express the installation was successful, but some services wont start. TAC was not exactly sure if the two were related...Just to keep in mind.
