Network Considerations for Name Change Operations

You must manually push the network configuration if you change the name or host name of any of the following entities:

  • Client behind a firewall or proxy
  • MediaAgent behind a firewall or proxy

Important:

  • The network configuration must be pushed in a specific order as indicated in the following procedure. To manually push the network configuration, right-click the entity, point to All Tasks, and then click Push Network Configuration.
  • The old and new host name must remain available until all clients or related clients (for example, MediaAgents and proxies) are updated with the latest network configuration.

The following table contains the order of the entities for which the network configuration must be pushed:
