D.2. Changing the Peer DNS Name of an SGD Server

The peer DNS name is the DNS name that an SGD server uses to identify itself to other SGD servers in the array. For example, boston.example.com.

When you change the peer DNS name of an SGD server, the Gateway might no longer be able to connect to the server. This is because the certificates used by the Gateway do not contain the new DNS name.

You might have to reconfigure your Gateway deployment as follows:

  1. (Optional) Install the new SGD server SSL certificate. See Section 2.2.2.1, “How to Install SGD Server Certificates”.

    This step is required if the new peer DNS name is not included in the SSL certificate used by the SGD server. You must replace the SSL certificate on the SGD server and install the new SSL certificate on each Gateway.

  2. (Optional) Install the new CA certificate for the SGD server. See Section 2.2.2.1, “How to Install SGD Server Certificates”.

    This step is required if you change the peer DNS name of the primary server in the array. You must regenerate the certificates used for secure intra-array communication and install the new CA certificate on each Gateway.

See the "Peer DNS Names" section in Chapter 1 of the Oracle Secure Global Desktop Administration Guide for Release 4.7 for more information about how to change the peer DNS name of an SGD server.
