In regard to: Re: [Networker] New client with old name?, George Sinclair...:

What about the entry for this host under 'Local Hosts' ??? Doesn't the NW client create some kind of certificate on its side to agree with the server?
It does.

Maybe that will all get refreshed or regenerated when the first backup starts or maybe when I start up the client?
If you thought to copy the /nsr/res from the old client to the new one,
things should just work.

If you didn't, you'll probably need to delete the peer information for
that particular client on your NetWorker server, and let it pick up the
new one that will automatically be generated when you start up the client
software on the new client system.
