renameNode command


A short name is assigned to a node during installation and customization. Use the renameNode command to modify the node name of a federated server.

Launch this command from the node whose name you want to modify. When you issue this command the following occurs:

  1. Connects to the dmgr.

  2. Stops all servers.

  3. Changes the node configuration on the dmgr.

  4. Synchronizes the node.

See about where to run this command, see the Use command line tools article.
