Question

How to change the hostname of DNS service node?

Answer

Such functionality was implemented in PA 11.5 #MU04.

/usr/local/ppa/bin/hostname utility allows to to change the host name of the management node and service nodes in PA. Find out more in our documentation.

Note: /usr/local/ppa/bin/hostname utility will not change NS records for existing DNS zones. To update NS records you could apply one of the following solutions:

  1. In the settings of each DNS zone click to Change DNS Hosting to External afterwards click to Change DNS Hosting to External.

  2. Apply the resolution described in the article

For the PA 11.1:

It is only one way to change hostname - add service node from scratch, it will be needed to remove all the DNS zones from node. You may follow the steps below to achieve that goal:

  1. For each DNS Zones change DNS Hosting to External.

    Go to Operations > DNS Manager > DNS Zones > choose a zone > switch to DNS tab > click "Change DNS Hosting to External" > Finish

  2. Go to Products > Resource Types > DNS > Activation Parameters > and change "First nameserver" parameter.

  3. Delete a DNS service node.

    Infrastructure > Service Nodes > choose a node > Delete

  4. Change a hostname.

  5. Register a node.

  6. Go to Products > Resource Types > DNS > Activation Parameters > and change "First nameserver" to the correct one.

  7. For each DNS Zones change DNS Hosting to back to internal.

    Go to Operations > DNS Manager > DNS Zones > choose a zone > switch to DNS tab > click "Change DNS Hosting to Internal" > Finish
