Changing the host name of a VMware server in NetBackup
Use the following procedure if you need to change a VMware server's host name as it is stored in NetBackup.
Example reasons for changing the VMware server name are the following:
You used a short host name for the server for its NetBackup credentials, and need to replace that name with the fully qualified host name.
Two hosts currently resolve to the same IP address, and one of them must be renamed and assigned a new IP address.
To change the host name of a VMware host in NetBackup
- Remove the current credentials that were entered for the VMware host.
Do the following:
In the NetBackup Administration Console, click on Media and Device Management > Credentials > Virtual Machine Servers.
Right-click on the credentials definition for the VMware server and select Delete (or press the Delete key).
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, re-enter NetBackup's credentials for the VMware server.
Make sure to enter the correct host name for the VMware server.
