Here is the situation. We had an ESM 6.5 server we were looking to upgrade, but the server kicked the bucket during the process. No backup available.
We installed a brand new server with ESM 6.9.1. The older 6.5 server was using a self-signed certificate. The new one is using a CA-signed certificate. IMPORTANT: the new server has the exact same name and ip address as the old one.
My question: how do I go about re-registering my smart connectors onto the new ESM server? I've tried adding the CA cert to the certificates repository on the ConApp and then selecting a host, clicking on CERTIFICATES and then updating all of the host's containers. However this did not change anything as the connectors continue to cache events.
I then just for kicks deleted the ESM destination from one of the connectors and re-added it. Then this connector in particular started sending events to the new server and I (of course) could see the connector from the ESM console.
Is there a more batch-like way of doing this?
