2.5. Renaming a Server

It is not possible to change the host name of an IdM server after it was set up. However, you can replace the server with a replica with a different name.
  1. Create a new replica of the server, with a CA and with the new required host name or IP address. This is described in Chapter 4, Installing and Uninstalling Identity Management Replicas.
  2. Stop the initial IdM server instance.
    [root@old_server ~]# ipactl stop
  3. Verify that all other replicas and clients are working as before.
  4. Uninstall the initial IdM server, as described in Section 2.4, “Uninstalling an IdM Server”
