  • Change CommCell Name v11sp14 and above
    Posted: 08-02-2019, 8:28 AM



    After planned CS failover my Commcell Name and Commserve Client Name didn't change and does not match new Commserve server name instead it matches my old Commserve server name which still hold a MediaAgent role. This is confusing.

    I would like to change Commcell Name and Commserver Client Name of a Commserve computer to match new CS server name.

    Unfortunatelly old method of using SetPreImagedName.exe ( ) doesn't seem to work any more also it looks that commvault advises against that

    According to BOL artcle changing commserver displayname using SetPreImagedName.exe can lead to communication issues. I can confirm that it does and I had to rollback changes.

    Does anyone know any valid way to change these names after Commserve computername changes?

    Sorry mate, whilst I TOTALLY agree that this is something that you should be able to do - it is not supported.  The workaround that was introduced in SP15 is the "Change Display Name" feature.
