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,

 

Tapio

Re: Changing Policy Manager 10.01 Server IP address

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.
