Client Automation - All Versions


The Scalability Server name is set via a configuration policy and it is centrally managed. So it is not possible to update it locally.




Change the name of Scalability Server by updating the configuration policy (all machines with the configuration policy applied will be impacted)


Change the configuration policy to set the parameter as locally managed and execute again the "caf setserveraddress" command on the machine
