Server Rename

Anyone have experience with renaming an envision server? Or servers are named the typical naming convention ie:

RSA-ENV1-AS1.RSA-ENV1.nic we are trying to use HP Openview (OVO) log scrapper to collect events (alerts) off the server to send them to our helpdesk application. The only way the OVO agent will work is if the DNS name resolves to the same name as the envision server (RSA-ENV1-AS1). In order for us to do that without renaming the server would be to create a complete other sub domain (RSA-ENV1.nic) off of our root domain, this is not something our DNS guys are to keen on doing.


Thanks in advance.


RSA just answered my question: "Unfortunately in order to rename a machine you will need to reimage it first.  There is no way to change the server name after envision has been installed."
