    Preparation before change "Computer Name"

      Hi,

      Because of audit purpose in my division, I need to change the "Computer Name" of the server where the ipMonitor installed on. Could anyone please explain me what I have to prepare for the existing ipMonitor Configuration before this change ? I'm afraid this change can affect ipMonitor SSL configuration, credential, etc. Currently I still use ipMonitor 8.5 in the server which its "Computer Name" have to be changed.

      Regards,

      Fauzan

          'm afraid this change can affect ipMonitor SSL configuration, credential, etc.

          Credentials will not be affected. You may want to do a "backup now", but this change won't affect anything we really count on.

          Before: Park the license. I don't know if you have to, but it's just a few clicks ...

          After: Grab the license, then do another self signed certificate. Ensure that the new computer's name doesn't have "_" and "*" in the name, and it'll work out fine. Note: We're finding out that the OS's Certificate lookup fails if those characters are in the common name.

          Other than that, there are no special details to know.
