New LEM hostname is appearing as a non-agent node and the appliance name still displays as swi-lem in the Web Console

Overview

After deploying LEM and changing the hostname, you notice the follow:

  • swi-lem is still the one and only appliance listed under Manage > Appliances and it would not let you change the name manually.
  • All of your incoming events show swi-lem in their Manager fields.
  • You may have a new non-agent node under Manage > Nodes that shows the new hostname for your LEM.

Environment

All LEM versions

Cause 

Certain system files were not updated with the new hostname properly when the hostname was changed. This is supposed to be an automated process.

Resolution

Contact SolarWinds Support to resolve this.
