Hostname change

Jump to solution
If I change one of my machine hostname and it is already managed, will the Epo update the machine hostname on the system tree?

Hello @User95478885 

Thanks for your post.

Yes it would get change when the next ASCI initiated.

ePO would use a value called the AgentGUID to uniquely identify a system in the ePO system tree. As long as this GUID value is not changed (for e.g. by forceinstalling the agent or reinstalling the OS), the system tree is updated with the new name during next Agent Server Communication.
