Hello @Diego Biondo,

If the domain join results in a host name change of the CM, you can follow the steps to change a Cell Manager name in the first place.

Then, for the devices, clients and backups you may need to re-configure. This includes export and import of the clients (if client name changes). If the client name does not change use omnicc -update_all -force_cs after CM name has been properly changed to reflect this on the clients.

If you have the chance, update the customer to a more recent version of Data Protector before this operation to have better utilities to rename the Cell Manager such as omnicellnamechange.pl.
