How to rename filer 7-Mode ?

DaV

Hello All

I have to rename systems. How should I do?

- standalone system (7.3.6)
- HA system (8.0.2 7-Mode)

No CIFS and NFS, just SAN

I thank you in advance !

edit /etc/rc file and change this entry

 

hostname (currentname) to newname

 

you should reboot to take effect. If you dont' want to reboot you can just type that name on the cli

Thanks for your fast answer !!

But, i don't really understand your lasts words : "if you dont' want to reboot you can just type that name on the cli"

Could you clarify please ?

Also, i'm not sure how old your systems are, but you really should upgraded to a newer code.  you are on code thats very old.

 

at the cli just type

 

hostname newfilername

 

but it's best to reboot or source rc file   srouce -v /etc/rc if you know how to do that
