    Default [SOLVED] How to rename server/domain.

    marcmac,

    Is there a way to reconfigure the name of the server given at install time with out sing everything?

    What I want to do is to be able to go from courriel.mydomaine.com to courrier.mydomain.com.

    In /etc/hostname, is sais courrier already and in hosts it says courrier.mydomaine.com already.

    But in mailname it says courriel.mydomaine.com and during the install, that's what I used.

    So How can I go about changing the name without having to reinstall everything and loose my users mailbox?

    Thanx!

    Are you trying to change the server name? Or the domain name. Too many typos in your post for me to figure out exactly what you want to do.

    I'm trying to change the sever name from courriel.mydomaine.com to courrier.mydomaine.com.

    For example, when someone will enter the address in a browser to access the gui frontend, I'd like the address to be courrier.mydomaine.com instead of courriel.mydomane.com like it is right now.

    Also when they will enter the address in their mail client, I want it to be courrier.mydomaine.com too.

    Is it possible to make these changes without reinstalling everything?

    I want to change every instance of these names in zimbra's config.

    Thanx!

    zmsetservername should do this but make a backup so if you make a mistake it's not all lost.

    Question zmsetserverrename in 4.5.x?

    That command must only exist on 5.0 beta. Is there a way to do it in 4.5.x? If I look around for the server name in LDAP and mysql database and change it everywhere, will that be enough? Is it stored anywhere else?

    no it exists in 4.5...

    WARNING MAKE A REALLY GOOD BACKUP-like your entire /opt/zimbra and any other folders

    Read the whole thing-most of it is stuff I've gathered from different people-the 'official' method is at the top:
    ZmSetServerName - ZimbraWiki

    In his example if he didn't want to change the server name, he could have also renamed the domain name or added a virtual host for courrier.mydomaine.com.
    Make sure changing the server name is actually what you want to do.

    I'll be cleaning it up a bit-but the numbered top section will pretty much stay the same-just going to consolidate the old junk
