If you change the computer name, the Symantec Management Console cannot be accessed locally or remotely, which makes the Symantec Management Platform unusable.
Changing the server name on which the Symantec Management Platform is installed is an untested and unsupported scenario.
The name of the Notification Server computer has been renamed. The following steps will need to be taken to correct this; however, it is not a guarantee that this will solve any other issues that may be caused by renaming the server:
Note: If the NS service account is a local user, the step above does not actually work. Symantec recommends switching the current local user to a domain user before renaming the machine.
The above solution has also been tested in a SMP7.1 environment successfully, however the console could not be accessed remotely. This was fixed by adding the user as a Symantec Administrator.
