What if we have to change hostname of any endpoint. What is the process to update the same to ePO. Re-installation is required or any other process.

Re: Change hostname of Endpoint

If you change a host name on the client pc, this shoould be reflected after the next checkin/send props/wakeup commnad.

Each machine has a unique identifier and this is what ePO uses to identify a machine. If then on the next collect/sendprops then the machine name should be automatically updated to reflect the change.
