Hi, I have installed the Cisco Call Manager version 6. And now I would like change the hostname of the call manager. How I can do it? What are the parameters or functions that are affected with the change of hostname?

I have this problem too.

You cannot change the hostname after the server has been installed. Your only option is to rebuild the server and specify new hostname during the installation.

The only time a hostname can be changed is when upgrading from windows based CM (4.X) to applicance based CM.

Hi Ricardo,

This is still a "no go" in all CCM Versions up 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!
