I am moving the epo server address I have agents 3.6 on the machine. I will not be upgrading any software, but I need to now how I can change the server address and then send that changed to the clients.
The agents will try to first connect to the server using the IP address. When that fails, they'll try to use FQDN and finally windows name resolution. What you DON'T want to do is change the server NAME and the IP at the same time because then the agents won't have any way of reaching the new server (change either IP or NAME, but not both at the same time).
My plan was to add in the new server in the repository and remove the old. Or have both added to the repository and then shutdown one server. As the agents fall back on the new server have that repository policy only list its self. Does this plan seem feasible?
Completely moving to a new pc. The old server will still run other applications that act as a server for other devices. The new server will have a different ip and name. I would like to somehow make the agents switch switch servers. The new server will have the repository.
