Chapter 10. Renaming an IdM server

download PDF

You cannot change the host name of an existing Identity Management (IdM) server. However, you can replace the server with a replica of a different name.


  1. Install a new replica that will replace the existing server, ensuring the replica has the required host name and IP address. For details, see Installing an IdM replica.


    If the server you are uninstalling is the certificate revocation list (CRL) publisher server, make another server the CRL publisher server before proceeding.

    For details on how this is done in the context of a migration procedure, see the following sections:

  2. Stop the existing IdM server instance.

    [root@old_server ~]# ipactl stop
  3. Uninstall the existing server as described in Uninstalling an IdM server.
