Change Backup Exec 2014 domain name

We want to change Symantec backup exec 2014 domain name with same hostname  & IP address.

I just need to confirm that after changing the domain name, do i need to perform any operation from BE media server end. I have read one article and it says for BE 2014 the server rename does not require any manual changes.

 

  • That's right. It does not. Prior versions of BE  required a change via BEUtility to update the configuration but not BE 2014 onwards.

    The only change if needed would be to change the service credentials of BE from olddomain\administrator to newdomain\administrator
