The Rename page renames any existing machine ID account. You can change the machine ID and/or re-assign it to a different group ID.
Agents are identified by a unique GUID number. Renaming the agent only changes the name the agent displays, both on the KServer and in the Set Account... option on the agent menu of the managed machine.
Note: See Agent > Change Group to assign multiple machines to a different group ID.
Click Rename to change the name of a selected machine ID account, using the options previously selected.
Enter the New Name for the selected machine ID.
Select the Group ID to assign to the selected machine ID account. The default leaves the group ID unchanged.
These icons indicate the agent check-in status of each managed machine:
Online but waiting for first audit to complete
Agent online and user currently logged on. Icon displays a tool tip showing the logon name.
Agent online and user currently logged on, but user not active for 10 minutes
Agent is currently offline
Agent has never checked in
Agent is online but remote control has been disabled
The agent has been suspended
The list of Machine.Group IDs displayed is based on the Machine ID / Group ID filter and the machine groups the user is authorized to see using System > User Security > Scopes. Click the radio button to the left of the machine account you wish to rename.
New Name at Next Check-in
