I have 3 servers in lower level environment which needs to be renamed. Three servers are SharePoint 2013 web app server, Application Server and Workflow Manager Server. I went through some documents online to set up the road map for this procedure, but got stuck when I thought about Workflow manager server and Server Certificates and SSL Certs. Can anyone has any information on this procedure. Thank You
for SharePoint farm, you can use the rename-spserver But if that failed then you have to rebuild the farm(due to corruption of Config DB). As per my experience with SP2010, where i renamed the whole farm(3 servers). Here what i did.
- On Server 1, run the Config wizard and remove the server from farm. rename it and then run the wizard again and join the far.
- Repeat the same for all 2 servers
- Now update the AAM and bindings and new SSL.
For Workflow manager i think the best bet is rebuild the farm. that is what MSDN saying
Removing a server from a farm is essential when you need to rename a machine or to reduce a farm to a single machine.
but you have only server then i think re built it.
