Rename Uyuni Server
It is possible to rename a Uyuni Server.
Begin by changing the network settings of the server locally and remotely.
Then use the
spacewalk-hostname-rename script to update the settings in the PostgreSQL database and the internal structures of Uyuni.
spacewalk-hostname-rename script is part of the
The only mandatory parameter for the script is the newly configured IP address of the Uyuni Server.
Change the network settings of the server on the system level locally and remotely at the DNS server. Provide configuration settings for reverse name resolution, too. Changing network settings is done in the same way as with renaming any other system.
Reboot the Uyuni Server to use the new network configuration and to ensure the hostname has changed.
Run the script
spacewalk-hostname-renamescript with the public IP address of the server. If the server is not using the new hostname, the script will fail.
Some other actions are needed to make your environment aware of the new hostname and IP address. Re-configure your clients. For background information, see client-configuration:registration-cli.adoc.
In the Salt minion configuration file
/etc/salt/minion, you must make sure to specify the name of the new Salt master (Uyuni Server):
Traditional clients have the
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2dateconfiguration file that must be changed. With a re-activation key you can re-register traditional clients (if there are any).
OPTIONAL: If you use PXE boot through a Uyuni Proxy, you must check the configuration settings of the proxy. On the proxy, run the
configure-tftpsync.shsetup script and enter the requested information. For more information, see installation:proxy-setup.adoc.
