  2. Under Maintenance, click Name Management.
  3. In the Name Management Wizard, select Update Domain name and then click Next.
  4. From the Old Domain Name list, select the old domain name.
  5. In the New Domain Name box, type the new domain name and then click Next.
  6. From the Available list, select the clients for which the domain name should change, and then click the right arrow button > to add them to the Selected list.
  7. Clear the Update database even if clients are unreachable check box.

    Important: If any clients are unreachable, re-run this operation for the failed clients after they become reachable.

  8. Click Finish.


The domain name is changed for the selected clients.
