    can any one please tell how to edit connector configuration if the corresponding domain manager (nimsoft hub and nimsoft db) server is moved to another data center with different name and ip address.?

    Moving a server with changing the name and IP can cause some effects, because the connector should get a new name to be referenced properly in the SOI Manager.

    All CIs coming via this connector will get new IDs, because the Product Instance is part of the ID-Triple.


    Is the connector installed on a separate server or directly on the UIM Server?


    If the Connector is installed on a remote server to UIM:

    You can use the Admin Tab in the SOI Dashboard to provide the new information, keeping the same connector name.

    Or you can edit the connector configuration file directly.


    If the connector is installed on the UIM Server:

    "Remove" the connector from the SA Manager, using the Admin tab in the SOI Dashboard.

    Then update the configuration file on the server where the Connector is installed and restart the Catalyst Container,

    The connector should re-register automatically with the Manager.


    In the worst case you have to:

    - remove the Connector from the SOI Manager

    - uninstall it from the server where it is currently installed

    - reinstall it, providing the new information about UIM.

    Thanks Michael for the reply.


    In our environment, Connector is installed in  separate machine.


    So, I have to change only the hostname of the new UIM in connector config. Correct?

    No need to bother about IP of UIM.

    Could you please confirm.


    In entire SOI setup, only hostname is referenced everywhere. Isnt it?

    Hi Rathna, As suggested by Michael, its preferable to change details from SOI Dashboard under 'Connection Details' for your UIM connector. Or if you want to do it from file then path is Catalyst\CatalystConnector\registry\topology\physical\_CatalystConnector\modules\configuration\Nimsoftconnector.xml In Either way, you have to change values for - mdrHostname - primaryHub (If primary Hub is on Same UIM Machine) - secondaryHub Not needed if you are not changing anything for secondary hub/ Secondary hub is not present at all) - wsUrl (If your UIM and DB installed on same machine) Thanks, Ashay
