changing the Universal Server hostname?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi all we stood up a proof of concept universal server to try out PGP WDE and WDE only. We are wanting to move that same server into production which requires a hostname change with our naming convention. What is the best way to do this ?

What happens to PGP Desktop clients that were customized to connect to Universal Server using that old hostname and are already installed?

There is a registry entry:

follow this method and just change the hostname in PGPSTAMP.  Also delete the PGP folder in %APPDATA%.  Reboot and itll re-enroll to the new universal server
