Jump to solution

Good day!

Is it possible to change management IP address of already deployed vCenter HA peer? And if it is, what's the best (or the only right) way to do it?

Can the hostname or IP address of a VCHA enabled node be changed?

No. While vCenter HA is enabled, no changes can be made to the addresses or hostnames of the nodes.

See: VMware Knowledge Base

Can the Passive Nodes Management Address be changed?

Yes. This can be accomplished in both a basic and advanced deployment of VCHA. For more details see step 6 of the Start the Advanced Configuration Process section of the vSphere Availability guide or step 7 of the Configure vCenter HA With the Basic Option section of the vSphere Availability guide.

Thanks, but that's not what i mean. I'm interested in possibility of changing IP of already deployed HA peer, too lazy to re-deploy the whole cluster.
