I'd like to change the name of my vcenter server. I get this error. Is there a workaround?
If not - I have 1 esxi server right now - I havn't really done much in vcenter except use it as my portal to manage my esxi server.... but I think all I have done so far (except for the creation of a template) is really in esxi.... can I just scrap my vcenter appliance and create a new one without much fuss then?
In this case, since you're using the appliance, I'd choose to scrap the existing one and roll out a new one, if you have the time to do that. Renaming is possible (http://practical-admin.com/blog/changing-the-vcenter-5-5-appliance-hostname/)
