Change vLab ESX from IP to hostname

Post by lobo519 » Sep 04, 2013 2:42 pm

Is there anyway to change the virtual lab ESX server without recreating the whole thing? I need to change from IP to host name.

It’s not possible to change this setting via GUI. So, you might want to contact our support team and see whether they have a way how the name and/or ID of virtual lab host can be directly changed in SQL database. Thanks.

I think I just received the fastest response from support ever...

The solution was pretty simple.

Delete the Virtual Lab (Do not clean up ESXi) you can then (instead of create new VLAB) connect to the existing VLAB via FQDN
