Has anyone ever had to rename every server in their Laserfiche server farm before? We have a new system administrator and one of his goals for 2024 to adopt a uniform server naming convention across the entire domain which we will have to comply with. If we were a small shop it wouldn't be such a big deal but between our DEV and PROD tiers we're talking 26 servers total. At a glance it seems like it would take 100s of hours to pull this off with significant downtime for our customers who are state government agencies that use us to host their Laserfiche enivronments.
Given the number of Forms and Workflows we have I know there's a huge number of connection profiles and data sources that would need to be changed and every service task that calls a workflow in a business process would have to be updated as well. And that's probably just the tip of the iceberg. I get that DNS aliasing can help smooth out the transition some but I'm not sure how much since there are SSL certs to consider.
I'm thinking it might make more sense to just duplicate the environment and then move each customer one at a time. There's a lot of time (and money) involved in doing that as well.
Does anyone have any thoughts they could offer? We are just trying to feel out what the process might look like at the moment. Thanks!
