This article describes how to change the hostname of a NetScaler appliance to reflect the same as that in the license file.

Objective

This article describes how to change the hostname of a NetScaler appliance to reflect the same as that in the license file.

Requirements

To complete this task, you need to install the following utilities:

  • A secure FTP client, such as WinSCP.

  • An SSH utility, such as PuTTy, Reflections, or SecureCRT.

Background

At times, you might need to change the hostname of a NetScaler appliance to reflect the license file installed on the appliance. By default, the hostname for the NetScaler VPX appliance is ns. However, the license file specifies the MAC address as the hostname for the appliance. This is specifically required for Access Gateway Enterprise Edition licenses.


Instructions

The hostname of a NetScaler appliance can be changed through the Configuration Utility.

  1. Select?? Configuration?? >?? System?? >?? Setup?? Wizard?? >?? Network?? Config.
    Notes:

  2. Specify the Host Name.

    Specify the hostname

    Note: This change is also reflected in the rc.conf file. It has the same effect as making changes directly to the rc.conf file by using shell prompt:
    root@test1# cat rc.conf
    hostname="test"root@test#

The hostname can also be changed from the command line interface of the appliance.

  1. ???? Log on to the NetScaler appliance by using an SSH utility.

  2. Switch to the shell prompt.

  3. Run the following command to change to the?? /nsconfig?? directory:
    # cd /nsconfig

  1. Display the content of the directory.

  2. If content exists, run the following command to open the?? rc.conf?? file in a text editor, such as the vi editor:
    # vi rc.conf

  3. ???? Edit the file to replace the hostname with the one available in the license file.

  4. Save and close the file.

  5. Change to the?? /etc?? directory.

  6. Open the?? hosts?? file in the vi editor.

  7. Edit the file to replace the hostname with the one available in the license file.

  8. Save and close the file.

  9. Restart the appliance.
