    Question [SOLVED] How to rename server?

    I set up my server initially for a single domain and named the server after the domain but now I'm planning to add a few new domains and want to rename the server ... is this possible without losing my current settings or having to reinstall?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forums,

    You can add additional domains easily enough; but if you need to change your hostname-I suggest making a good backup first:
    ZmSetServerName - ZimbraWiki

    Yes, I already added the new domains ... I just wanted to change the hostname to something more generic. I have yet to upgrade to 4.5.7 but I believe I will first since it seems a less tedious route...

    Thanks much for the pointer to the article!

    Cheers,

    no problem-It was actually just updated a bit for 4.5.7, see the version differences: ZmSetServerName - History - ZimbraWiki

    -so upgrade to 4.5.7, make a backup, try the hostname switch, and let us know your results
