Changing Policy Manager 10.01 Server IP address

Hi,

 

I'm planning to change the IP address of the PM server and I need to know if there's anything that I should be aware of? At the moment the PM server gets its IP address from DHCP (I know it's bad, but we recently took this environment to our control).

 

EDIT: I forgot to say that the the old and the new address are in the same subnet.

 

Regards,

    Hi Tapio,

    It depends on how you configured the Management Server Address.

    - Root > Settings > Centralized management > Policy Manager Server settings > Policy Manager Server

    1. By IP address, e.g. http://192.168.1.100:80.
    - If new IP assigned is 192.168.1.1, change the setting above to http://192.168.1.1:80.
    - Distribute policy. Make sure all clients received latest policy settings.
    - Change your server IP address.

    2. By server name, e.g. http://server.domain.local:80.
    - Update your A record in DNS server accordingly.

    Thanks.


    Best Regards,
    Jayson
