What happens if a node changes IP number? He has to be installed again>

Unfortunately, we do not support that currently. In case that happens, you need to reinstall a node so the new network configuration is applied across all cluster nodes.

here are the instructions to 'fix' a node that lives on a box with a change in IP:

  1. change directory to the directory containing the dynatrace managed install (i.e., /opt/dynatrace-managed)
    cd /opt/dynatrace-managed/
  2. run this command to find all files with the 'old' IP address (replace <OLD_IP_ADDRESS> with the old IP address, like
    find . -type f -exec grep -H <OLD_IP_ADDRESS> {} \;
  3. You should see an output like this:
  4. run this command to replace the old IP with the new (make sure this time it's STATIC) IP address:
    find ./ -type f -exec sed -i 's/<OLD_IP_ADDRESS>/<NEW_IP_ADDRESS>/' {} \;
  5. For example, if the intentions is to change the node's IP from to, the command would look like this:
    find ./ -type f -exec sed -i s/' {} \;
  6. Once the command is done executing, verify it was successful by using the original search command with the new IP:
    find . -type f -exec -H <NEW_IP_ADDRESS> {} \;
  7. Again, replacing <NEW_IP_ADDRESS> with your new IP, e.g.,
  8. start the node using the /opt/dynatrace-managed/launcher/ script

Have you verified it works? There might be also some database changes required.

Hello @Radoslaw S. and @Kia F.

I've just did this, and it worked.

Do you think there could be any repercussion?

Best regards.


It is worked with me as well.
