Sometimes, it may be necessary to change the hostname of the management node. If you simply change the name, some Parallels Plesk Automation services may start to work improperly. To avoid such an issue after changing the address, use the "ppa_hostname" utility. The utility propagates the new hostname to all the related Parallels Plesk Automation services and service nodes.


To change the hostname of the management node:

  1. Log in to the management node as root.

  2. Change the management node’s hostname in the operating system. You can do this by editing the "/etc/sysconfig/network" file.

  3. Set the new hostname using the following steps:

    ~# hostname <NEW_HOSTNAME>
  4. Modify records in /etc/hosts file.

  5. Run ppa.hostname utility to propogate changes to the PPA infrustructure:

    #ppa.hostname --update
