Friends,

 

Version 11.28.89

 

I need to update the hostname on a bunch of clients, so I try to do this via Set-CVClient as described here: https://documentation.commvault.com/v11/essential/101881_set_cvclient.html

 

But eventhough I receive errorCode 0, it seems that nothing is done. Can anyone tell me what is going wrong?

 

Thanks in advance,

Maurice van ‘t Loo

Also tried via Rest API, according to this: https://api.commvault.com/#b6d8a08a-2aed-4aa8-b134-7ee5027f1570
 

$body = @"
{
"clientProperties": {
"client": {
"clientEntity": {
"hostname": "TESTSERVER.domain.nl"
}
}
}
}
"@

POST to “webconsole/api/Client/5193” doesn’t do anything except returning a returncode telling that everything went fine….

 

I use GET/POST/DELETE in other scripts, so I know that API works, but just to update the hostname seems a problem.
