Team: Huntress EDR
Product: Host Name Change
Environment: Huntress management portal
Summary: Changing the host name of a machine syncing with Huntress will result in a name change in the Huntress Portal. However, this may be delayed, so check back if you don't see it right away.
If I update a host’s name does it automatically get updated in Huntress?
Whenever you update a host's name, the host will communicate back to Huntress (typically within 30 minutes) and the agent name will get updated automatically in the Huntress portal.
Please note that this will only happen if the host has been rebooted since the name change took place.
- Rename the host
- Reboot the host
- Wait for the host to sync back with Huntress
