What are consequences on SSIM Agent if i rename a server?

What are consequences on SSIM Agent if i rename a server?

The Agent is bootstrap with a collector. So how to get the new name to be recognized by the collector?

You must know that the server is collecting event for two other server (to remove the load of the Agent on these servers)

Anyone has an idea or tried something similar?

Are you renaming an agent or a device you're collecting from?  I've not done this for an agent but I imagine the easiest way would be to delete the Agent from the OU in SSIM, make the name change, then re-bootstrap via the agent menu.  If it's a device you're collecting from it's just a change in the sensor config.

If you are talking about renaming the SSIM appliance itself, there will be a need to rebootstrap the agent manually, as there is a new certificate generated during the process.
