For an AE client there is nothing that is required to change if the local host's name is changed.
For an AE agent: Stop the agent process Remove the contents of the agent's database directory Delete and reinsert the agent's machine definition via jil with the correct node_name information If EnableIPCaching=1 on the scheduler, stop and restart the scheduler Restart the agent
NOTE - The $AUTOUSER/autosys.<shell>.<hostname> files can also be changed but it is not required. If they are changed, users need to update their $HOME/.profiles if they were configured to source them. Also adjust the references to the files in the /etc/*profile* and /etc/auto.* files.
