Change agent name with agent procedure

This question is answered

Hi,

Is it possible to change the agent name (not the machine name) in Kaseya by using an agent procedure?

Example:
1) New machine gets installed with a random hostname 
2) Kaseya is installed and uses the random hostname as the agent name
3) Dependant on MAC address or Servicetag of the machine I want to change the hostname of the machine AND the name of the agent in Kaseya

At part 3 I am able to change the machine name, but is their an way so I can change the agent name with an agent procedure?

Regards,
Jort

  • You don't need a procedure. Use the [System > Naming Policy] page and check the box for "Force machine ID..." on that machine group.
