Installed vCenter using an I.P. address

Jump to solution

Maybe I jumped the gun here.

I deployed vCenter Server appliance  6.7 with an embedded platform services controller using an I.P address thinking I could change it once I had the FQDN.

After doing a bit of research, I came across this KB:

     Cannot change the vCenter Server or Platform Service Controller 6.x hostname (2130599)

Any workarounds, or should I begin again with the FQDN? Need for this to be a rock solid deployment.

Thanks.

You cannot change the Hostname (FQDN), also referred to as Primary Network Identifier (PNID) before or after migration.

You can however, change the IP Address if you are using FQDN by updating your DNS records and then updating the IP Address of your vCenter Server using the Virtual Appliance Management Interface (VAMI) located at https://vcenter_server:5480.

Edit the DNS and IP Address Settings of the vCenter Server Appliance
