Our confluence instance (6.15.10 server) is connected to active directory. We are moving to a new active directory server. The only thing that is changing between severs is the actual hostname or so I am being told by our network team.
Do I need to just modify the existing user directory hostname in confluence to the new hostname? Or do I need to Add a new directory?
I checked the knowledgebase and I see where it give instructions on how to edit the existing active directory settings, but I was concerned with if these edits will have any impact to existing users/permissions. If I edit the existing active directory - will this have any impact to current users and any confluence permissions assigned through confluence and not AD.
Thanks for any input. And if this is documented somewhere in the knowledgebase, please point me in that direction!
A direct edit of the hostname/ip address should work here if everything else is staying the same. Once done, synchronized the directory again.
For safety my suggestion would be
This is the safer way to go.
Advantage of the first way where you are just changing hostname over the second is if a user is mapped to a local group, you do not need to add them to the local group.
