EV server hardware change with no CName

Hi,

Client has EV server installed with no CName and needs to move server to new hardware.

ComputerName = EVserver.domain.com

ComputerNameAlternate = EVserver

Trying to find out options:

Server move technote at https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000081331 gives 2 options:

- use same name on new hardware.  This is straight forward.

- use changed name on new hardware.  This asks you to point the CName to the new server.  Since there is no CName, would this work?  In other words if we change:

ComputerName = NewServer.domain.com and

ComputerNameAlternate = NewServer and

run EVConfig as new server, would that work? 

Thanks,

Re: EV server hardware change with no CName

Hello,

throughout EV migrations, restores etc. the following rule must be followed:

- ComputerNameAlternate can be changed

- ComputerName must be kept the same

So on DNS level, I would delete/recreate record for "EVserver" (as a C name), pointing to A record for a new HW hostname.

Then during migration, follow steps with ComputerEntry table update (see EV documentations)

regards
