pmx-location - Change the configured IP address and hostname of a PureMessage server.
This tool allows you to set up PureMessage with a temporary IP address/hostname.
For example you may want set up PureMessage in one location, and then change the location when you are ready to implement PureMessage in a live production environment.
To change the IP address and hostname of a PureMessage server, run:
pmx-location --prev-hostname OldHostname.example.com --new-hostname NewHostname.example.com --prev-ip 192.0.2.10 --new-ip 192.0.2.25
If no options are specifed, the
pmx-location command returns the current
hostname and IP address.
The following options are recognized by
--new-hostnameto switch to a new hostname.
--prev-hostnameto switch to a new hostname.
--new-ipto switch from an old to new IP address.
--prev-ipto switch from an old to new IP address.
If you want to use
pmx-location in a multi-server installation of PureMessage,
additional steps are required (this procedure assumes that you are changing the
IP addressess/hostnames of the edge servers as well as the database server):
