Change the node host names

After creating a profile or adding a node, the host name of the server or its ports might be incorrect. We can follow the examples to change the server host name using tools and the wsadmin scripting tool, and the host name of the server ports using the console and tools.

Create a profile or add a node to a cell. Verify that the host name of the server and the server ports are correct.

If the host name of a server or its ports is incorrect, then you might experience problems such as errors when you attempt to stop a server. One example task shows how to correct the server host name through tools and the wsadmin scripting tool. The other example task shows how to correct the host name of the server ports using the console and tools.


Results

You have changed the host name of the server, the host names of the server ports, or both.
