This section describes the procedure for changing the CE hostname, peer CE hostname, and/or system name.

You can use the either Command Line or Platform Manager to change Node name.

Both procedures are service-impacting.

Change System Name and Hostnames From EMA

To change system name, the local host name, and the peer host name from EMA, refer to System Administration - Change Name.

Change Hostname From Command Line

This section describes the procedure for changing the CE name, peer CE name, and/or system name.

Note: This procedure is not mandatory and is used to change the node name only if required.
  1. Shut down the SBC application on the standby system.

    service sbx stop
  2. Run nameChange.pl script on the active system. Usage is:

    /opt/sonus/sbx/scripts/nameChange.pl [-h] [-c new_ce_name] [-p new_peer_ce_name] [-s new_system_name] [-l level] [-L level]


    where,
    -h: Prints usage statement
    -c: Changes the CE hostname to the specified name
    -p: Changes the peer CE hostname to the specified name
    -s: Changes the system name to the specified name
    -l: Force confd debug level
    where, 0 - SILENT, 1 - DEBUG, 2 - TRACE
    -L: Force pstrace level
    where, 0 - SILENT, 1 - TRACE, 2 - VERB

    • This script must be run on both active and standby systems.
    • Stop the SBC application on both the standby and active systems, and then run the nameChange.pl script on both active and standby systems.
    • One of the -c, -p, or -s options must be specified.
  3. Once the active system successfully finishes updating, run nameChange.pl script on the standby system. 

    The active and standby systems accept different arguments since the CE hostname/peer hostname depends on which system you are accessing.
  4. Start the SBC application active system.

    service sbx start 


  5. Start the service on the standby system.

    service sbx start
