Renaming hosts in ML cluster
14 July 2020 12:07 PM


Using MarkLogic Server's Admin UI, it is possible to modify the name of a single host via Admin UI -> Configure -> Hosts -> 'Select Host in question' and update the name and click ok.

However, if you would want to change/update the hostnames across cluster, we recommend that you follow the below steps:

1) Renaming hosts in a cluster

  • Add the new hostnames to the DNS or /etc/hosts on all hosts.
  • Make sure all new hostnames can be resolved from the nodes in the cluster.
  • Rename all host-names using one of the following:
  • Host/cluster should come up if the DNS entries have been set up correctly.
  • Remove old host names.

2) Once the hostnames are updated, we recommend you verify the items below that may be affected by hostname changes:

  • Application Servers
  • PKI Certificates
  • Database replication
  • Flexible replication
  • Application code
