Rename an LCE Client

Naming an LCE client makes it easier to locate in the client table in the future. Initially, an LCE client is given one of the following names, ordered by priority:

  • The hostname of the LCE client host, if resolved by the LCE server.
  • Unknown, if a name is not assigned and the LCE server cannot resolve the hostname.

To rename an LCE Client:

  1. Log in to Log Correlation Engine via the user interface.

  2. In the top navigation bar, click Clients.

    The Clients page appears, displaying the client table.

  3. In the client table, in the row corresponding to the LCE client that you want to rename, select the check box.

    Note: You can rename multiple LCE clients by selecting the corresponding check boxes. The selected clients will be assigned the same name.

  4. Above the client table, in the upper-left corner, click the Actions button, and then click Rename.

    The Rename client(s) dialog box appears.

  5. In the Name box, type a name for the LCE client.

  6. Review the LCE client that will be renamed, and then click the Rename client(s) button.

    The LCE client is renamed. The new name appears in the Name column of the client table.
