Renaming the cluster in cDOT 8.2.3P6

netappadmn

Hi All,

 

Greetings for the day.

 

I have received a request to rename the Cluster (which is in production) to adhere to the naming standards.

 

As I am a newbie in Cdot, I would like to know the following before going ahead with this change.

 

1. Can I modify the Cluster name on the fly ?

2. Would there be any impact on SVM the hosted services (in my case it is only CIFS) in the cluster?

3. Do and donts ?

4. Any preparation work(like backup) or prerequisites to be met ?

 

Regards,

Hi

 

It won't effect any production. You can use the below command to change the cluster name.

 

 cluster identity modify -name XXXXXXXXXXX

 

It wont effect backups as they are running on node level or SVM level. It may lost the connectivity with monitoring tools if you are using host name. Please update the DNS entries with new host once u r done. It will not impact even data services.
