How to change a node hostname in vRealize Operations Manager 8.6

Hi, Today I installed a new vRops version 8.6, and I realized, that it’s name is photon-machine.

Before I start my cluster, I want to change it.


1- First, SSH to vRops server or appliance address and login as a root user.

2- write this command

$VMWARE_PYTHON_BIN /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/bin/ <NewHostName>

For example:

My old name is photon-machine and I want to change it to vrops01.

$VMWARE_PYTHON_BIN /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/bin/ vrops01

3- After that, Type reboot, then press Enter to reset your server.

4- Use the vRops admin UI to bring the cluster online.


Finish 🙂
