Transferring a WHS name to a new box RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

     

    We recently lost the main drive on a WHS box and had to rebuild it. When it came to naming the box we could not use the old name because it was already in use! Does anyone know of a way to retain the old name for a new box?

    Thanks

  • Are you referring to the vanity URL (xxx.homeserver.com)? If so, you need to use the same Live ID to recover the old vanity URL.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • What name? "Server". If this is it, you can rename it after installation completed (Physically logon to the WHS | Control Panel | System | Computername-tab etc )

  • Yes, I was looking for the "vanity name". Thanks I will try that on my next reinstall. If I can remember which Live ID I used!
