Protection for SharePoint Servers


IP was changed on a Microsoft Sharepoint server after SPSS was installed. This change is reflected under the Microsoft Sharepoint Central Administration. However the Farm Overview page under SPSS console does not pick up the new IP and is still showing the old IP on the server.

The server is shown offline under the Farm Overview page.


SPSS Database was not updated after the server IP is changed.


Fix has been implemented into SPSS 6.0.1 or higher. When an IP was changed on SharePoint server with SPSS installed, perform the following steps to resolve the issue:
  1. Restart the SPSS service of the server whose IP address has been changed.
  2. Restart the SPSS service of the CA server.
  3. Refresh the Farm Overview page to check whether the issue has been resolved. 
  4. After performing the above steps, entries related to that server will get updated in the database and configuration file.
