Doing some cleanup and had to rename a nodename of an existing standalone Proxmox Server. Found that it wasn’t too straight forward because it detected the old nodename and placed the vz underneath it. So here is a simple way to rename the Proxmox Node. Firstly the normal steps: vi /etc/hosts vi /etc/hostname Replace the entries with your intended hostname. You will now need to restart pve in order to create the new hostname in the system. service pve-cluster restart This should now create a new host entry in Proxmox and a new folder under /etc/pve/nodes/[newhostname] You now need to copy your old openvz data from the old folder to the new. mv /etc/pve/nodes/[oldhostname]/openvz/* /etc/pve/nodes/[oldhostname]/openvz/ Example: mv /etc/pve/nodes/proxmox-portable/openvz/* /etc/pve/nodes/proxmox-Xen/openvz/ I would advise to restart the Proxmox host in order to finish the renaming.
