Configure Hostname

To change the hostname from the default (“tnsAppliance”), enter the new hostname (less than 64 characters) in the box next to “New hostname” and click on the “Set Hostname” button. Immediately after clicking “Set Hostname”, a note appears indicating that the Appliance needs to be restarted for the change to take full effect. The user is presented with a screen similar to the screen capture below.

Note: Changing the hostname will cause the Appliance to issue a new self-generated SSL certificate.

This reboot ensures that operating system specific changes related to the hostname change fully take effect. Perform this reboot either through the web “Administration” page or via the console “Restart Appliance” option.
