    FOE server hostname

    jim080

      HI Guys,

      can anyone help me clarify this:

       

      1.  Will there be any impacts on my solarwinds, if I change my solarwinds server hostname.

       

      2. For my FoE, V2V, pre-clone, do I need both machine to have the same hostname?

       

      Thanks,

          All SolarWinds licenses are tied to the hostname of the server where they are installed. Changing the hostname would require you to reclaim those licenses, change the hostname, re-apply the licenses to the server, then re-run the Configuration Wizard. You may also have to re-assign all your nodes to the new poller name as Orion will think this is an entirely new poller and your jobs are assigned to a poller with the old/original name.

           

          Yes, FoE does require that both primary and secondary servers have the same hostname.
