Wrong trust and certificate after hostname change

Hi all

I do have issues with certificates and trust like I mentioned in another thread but here is a different one. I did need to change hostname of two systems because the customer deliver wrong information at the beginning. I did that by GUI within Hardware-Ethernet......

old name = EMCDD01.CUSTOMER.LOCAL

new name = DD040B01.CUSTOMER.LOKAL

After changing the hostnames and a reboot it tells me in the CLI the following

root@DD040B01# hostname

The Hostname is: DD040B01.CUSTOMER.LOKAL

root@DD040B01# adminaccess trust show

Subject Type         Valid From Valid Until Fingerprint

------------------ ----------   ------------------------ ------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------

EMCDD01.CUSTOMER.LOCAL trusted-ca Sun Mar  1 15:34:41 2015   Wed Feb 21 15:34:41 2046 E2:2F:B0:CB:62:68:4B:51:9DSmiley Very HappyE:94:6D:71:C9:30:64:AC:28:2D:41

the same for the other system. What is the supported way to change hostname?

I am pretty much sure that this will lead to certificate issues anyway even more then I have. I have to be honest I am a little bit stressed about all this atm.

Re: Wrong trust and certificate after hostname change

Hi Duker,

The problem lies in the way DD generates the certificate. The actual hostname is in the initial certificate. Because you cannot remove this certificate from the DD GUI you have to do this from the Linux kernel.

Please op een SR and support will help you with this task.

Regards,

Daniel

Yes I don't think you can setup replication now.

Are the 2 system under support?
