hostname change

I recently changed the hostname of my server with set_parms. Then when I tried to run make_net_recovery, it ends up reverting to the old system name. Is the hostname stored somewhere where I should be changing it for Ignite?

Re: hostname change

Hi,
Take a look at /var/opt/ignite/clients on your Ignite server. Did you change the link there ?
And further :
/var/opt/ignite/clients//client_name
/var/opt/ignite/clients//host.info

That should do the "ignite"-trick ...

Re: hostname change

hostname is stored in /etc/rc.config.d/netconf

It is not supposed to change when you run make_net_recovery

Check the configuration files in /var/opt/ignite on the Ignite Server.

Re: hostname change

Hi

As Tom has said when make_net_recovery runs it sets up an NFS mount from the Ignite Server.

You need to change the names on the directories Tom mentioned and then update your /etc/exports file with the new names.
Then run
# exportfs -av
