How to change the Smart Connector Name ?

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to change the Smart Connector name on the local server on which it is installed ( not via the console )  ?

I have to change the name through my script.

So I'd love to know what is the configuration file you can change the name of the Smart Connector?

Thanks

You'll have to edit the XML files under current/user/agent (they have the agentID as file name).

There's two different places where the name is, modify both of theses and restart the connector. Should have the new name.

Do you know how to set the connector name as variable when i set Smart Connector silent installation, for example "hostname"

My goal is to install a silent installation on many servers but where the Smart Connector name  will be the OS computer name.

Thanks

I've used ansible to deploy large numbers of connectors using the silent install process. It will give you the ability to make the hostname (or anything else) a variable that gets dumped into the answer files for the silent install. You could also use a simple script to do the same thing obviously. I don't think there are any easy ways to get the silent install process to handle that for you...
