Change the Directory Server Host
You may need to specify a different directory server host if you relocate or remove the core (primary) directory server from your network. You can also use this setup page to enable or disable a secure connection between PolicyCenter and the directory server.
Important: Blue Coat recommends backing up the directory server before changing core directory server hosts. Note that the PolicyCenter installation on the new directory server host must be configured with a DNS name (or IP address) and a Directory server password before you change directory server hosts or subscribe units to the new PolicyCenter server.
To change the core directory server host:
If units were subscribed to the directory server using the IP address of the directory server and the IP address has changed, you will need to unsubscribe the units from the previous directory server, and resubscribe to the new core directory server. This is also true if you subscribed to the directory server using the DNS name and the new directory server has a different name. If, however, you subscribed the units by specifying the IP address or DNS name of the directory server and neither has changed, you do not need to perform the following steps.
First, the unit must be set to local mode, then resubscribed to PolicyCenter using the new directory server hostname or IP address.
