After renaming the host and changing the IP address - DFM not syncing the hostname details and IP details

Hi All,

DFM is not showing the updated Hostname and Ip address. Still showing the OLD hostname.

Please my troubleshooting steps so far.....

DFM host delete old_hostname

DFM host add new_hostname

DFM host add new_ip also didn't work it took the old details

Still showing the OLD hostname

Tried discovering using IP and also hostname = NO Luck

When executed dfm host diag new_hostname got the following o/p

C:\>dfm host diag new_hostname

Host Agent Connect     Failed (transport http; port 4092)

Is there anything to do with "Host Agent Connect     Failed (transport http; port 4092)"

Thanks in advance.

Re: After renaming the host and changing the IP address - DFM not syncing the hostname details and IP details

If you're alright with not retaining any old data, try shutting down all DFM services except the database and do a 'DFM host delete -f <host name>' IIRC.. Then you can add it back in as you outlined above..

Thanks a lot Arumugam.. It work'd But a small Tips for other's when they try to rename and Change the IP Go with the hostname and then the IP rather than reverse.

Thanks Mike, For your response I would have gone with your suggestion if dfm rename and dfm host didn't work.

Thanks again
