What is the procedure to rename a Hub in UIM?


UIM 9.x or later


To rename a hub, follow these steps:

1. Use the Nimsoft Service Controller to stop Nimsoft on the machine in question.
2. Edit the hub.cfg and change the hubname = <hubname> line to reflect the new desired hub name.
3. Edit the robot.cfg and change hub = <hubname> and hubrobotname = <robotname> as well.
4. Restart Nimsoft using the Service Controller.

Additional Information

Hub rename requires a cold start of the hub: stop Nimsoft service and then start it back up.

In the event that probes on the newly renamed hub show red-lock icon, right-click the probes and select Security->Validate.

If 'origin' on hub was not set and the hub's name was being used as 'origin' then you have to update S_QOS_DATA table using SLM tool to reflect your new hub name.

Please also see the KB article on validating probes with the PU command:
KB47923 : Is it possible to re-validate a probe via the PU Command?

NOTE: Any queues / configuration pointing to the old hub name will need to be manually changed.
