It all depends on how NBU was installed - using shortname or FQDN.

Shortname is easy - just change/add the alias for FQDN.

FQDN - nothing easy about that. Changing this name in NBU is seen as hostname change.

Please share output of 'nbemmcmd -listhosts -verbose'.

If you do not want to share names publically, feel free to change them to something like this:
master
master.domain
media1
media2
etc.

 Thank you Marianne, Since we you the Host name instead of FQDN it was easy and also for all Clients we used the host name aslo,, i faced another issue that we change IP addresses for some clients and we solve this issue by clearing the Master server Cache.

The below two Tech notes help me and useful.
