server to its RDBMS. The rulebase location may have to be updated. Any
machines or scripts that directly refer to the name of the Managed Node as
a destination for events may have to be updated. Event Consoles may have to
All in all, it may be easier to remove the TEC Server and Consoles and
recreate it - assuming the name change is vital!

Subject: Host Name Change on TEC Server
Is it a major project to change the host name on a T/EC Server?
If so where do I look to make sure I don't miss any thing?
