    Migration for NCM/NPM

    aarond

      Recently started a new job and been tasked with migrating SolarWinds over to a new host (2003 to 2008 R2). The database location and name will not be changing and is hosted on an external SQL server. My plan is install the new server, shut down the old, rename and new to match the old hostname, and then connect the database.

       

      My question is can you rename the hostname of a SolarWinds after installing the software if all services are shutdown prior to rename? My migration plan isn't covered in the guide but wanted to make sure this would work before starting.

       

      Thanks!
