Hello community,


Due to a network change at commvault infrastructure level, i’ve lost connexion with some agents


In reality, i need to change listening interface locally


But how to do it?


Is there some cli command or tool or something to avoid complete agent reinstall to make the agent listening on another interface please?


Need for windows and linux operating systems please


Thanks in advance.
