Hi Craig,
I'm referring to this TID: https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7015744 after being referenced to it from this one: https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7024234

TID makes it seem like if you change the hostname of the linux server, this will break GMS unless you change some GMS stuff too, but it doesn't say what needs to be changed.. Only "use dsapp"..which we know no longer works.

If I understand what you're saying correctly, having just done it, I used Yast | Network Settings to make the hostname the same, and then modified /etc/hosts to DNS the GW Server  (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__192.168.10.1&d=DwIFAg&c=euGZstcaTDllvimEN8b7jXrwqOf-v5A_CdpgnVfiiMM&r=vfKuCvzWKlhjrQP4MZgcKF_sjZDhN3tce1ZSwdMdh40&m=jiAxdxYTLVZisU_OaGX0IXX1m9A7aLCp_cwQRKHGhk4&s=_dXpL6TWeYvz2Ived3aBGRww3h-nhuDa2jdeyLxePW4&e= server.cwise server  and itself, just in case, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__192.168.10.2&d=DwIFAg&c=euGZstcaTDllvimEN8b7jXrwqOf-v5A_CdpgnVfiiMM&r=vfKuCvzWKlhjrQP4MZgcKF_sjZDhN3tce1ZSwdMdh40&m=jiAxdxYTLVZisU_OaGX0IXX1m9A7aLCp_cwQRKHGhk4&s=EhfejGKwRoFJzLX3sBd8X3JBxLEJKGYDbIwiB7Q4F64&e= mobility.cwise mobility)

It all gets a bit long-winded with command lines, so I recommend using ssl-toolkit  as a replacement for DSAPP. I liked DSAPP, for it's ease of use, and also the other maintenance tasks like vacuum. 

I personally feel that Micro-Focus should put together some more user-friendly scripts for installation of Mobility, Certificates, and GW Web.

We are writing our own scripts here for the meantime, for our own internal use.

First Facebook and now the KB?! :)

In that case.. Does anyone know how to properly change a new gms servers hostname to match old one without the ability to use DSAPP?
And some conflicting info I've read.. To have users not notice the gms server change at all.. Does new server need to match hostname only or also have the ip of the old server? Memory serves you could just change the NAT address to the new internal servers ip and all would go well.

It is down currently, unfortunately.  Our IS team is working on getting it back up and running but currently we do not have an ETA.

Anyone else having KB issues last few days? Been unable to access any documents on the KB.
