How to change the existing VIP host name.

1) Go to Master filer Webui → Configuration → High Availability → Change the shared hostname. 

Note - AD will be disjoined after the above operation. 

2) Open the WebUI → Configuration → Active Directory → Join Active Directory by entering the credentials. 

3) Once the AD is joined. Try accessing the shares with the new shared hostname. (please make sure we have an A record in the DNS with updated shared hostname)


If the active filer is a master filer, then we will have to update the master hostname in all the peer filers.

You may change it from Webui → Configuration → System settings → Configuration mode → Master host name
