Renaming a node

You can change a node's name as required.

Step

  1. To rename a node, use the system node rename command.
    The -newname parameter specifies the new name for the node. The system node rename man page describes the rules for specifying the node name.
    If you want to rename multiple nodes in the cluster, you must run the command for each node individually.
    Note: Node name cannot be "all" because "all" is a system reserved name.

Example of renaming a node

The following command renames node "node1" to "node1a":

cluster1::> system node rename -node node1 -newname node1a
