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/sethostname.py <NewHostName>
My old name is photon-machine and I want to change it to vrops01.
$VMWARE_PYTHON_BIN /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/bin/sethostname.py vrops01
3- After that, Type reboot, then press Enter to reset your server.
4- Use the vRops admin UI to bring the cluster online.
Hi, Today I plan to change vCenter7’s hostname, domain name and IP address.
Please take a backup from your vCenter and unregistered your plugins (such as monitoring, backup) from vCenter server.
Make sure that the new FQDN/Hostname is resolvable to the IP address (DNS A records). Make sure that the resolution works in both directions.
First, Connect to vCenter VAMI interface, The address is :
https://your_vCenter_ip_address or FQDN :5480/
Then go to Networking> end click Edit
In this wizard will select a network adapter that you would like to edit.
On the next screen, we can change the hostname, IP address and a DNS setting.
On this screen, we just need to fill in our Single Sign-On (SSO) credentials.
On this screen, select the checkbox, if you have made a backup of your vCenter Server and unregistered extensions.
