    I want to change name of commcell and media agent to dns.

    Now I reference name with host file on windows "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts"

    I have changed and rename the comserv server and media server to domain name but now I not sure that is correct, because I cannot login to commcell via commcell manager.

    And I cannot start service " Data ProtectionSuite Application Manager"

    Can i uninstall and reinstall commvault? 

    or how can I do it?

    Hi Peary,

    Please cross check to make sure these steps were followed -

    Changing the CommServe Computer Name -

    Changing the Client Computer Name - see "On a MediaAgent Computer" section -

    Hope this helps. If the above was followed properly and you are still unable to login to the comcell it might be best to open a ticket with support.
