Changing the Presence Domain

Hey guys.


Just wanted to know if anyone has ever changed their presence domain ? 
Actually my customer presence domain is COMPANY.LOCAL but I would like to change it to COMPANY.COM in order to deploy expressway and federation in a much proper way.

I don't see the impact of doing such things but I just wanted to have some feedback regarding that operation :)

I know I have to shutdown XCP Router and other service before performing the change :)


Thanks for your feedback :)

The server has been migrated to a new presence domain but I had to change the DNS domain as well .. (this is mandatory per the config guide)

Just to let you know

Yes contact list will remain (at least on my version).

I did say that I had to change the DNS name but I changed it back ... we experienced a bug that was under investigation by Cisco TAC.

Presence domain and server domain name can be different of course


I know NTP forces a rehost

I know NTP forces a rehost and I think DNS does as well which is probably why you ran into problems.
