Hi there

 

I am sure lots of people have had to do this before. I need to change all external file references from IP to FQDN to keep fm15 happy with certs.

 

Can I just edit the external reference in each file and change IP to FQDN in existing references? is there any impact on scripts/relationships etc. In theory all the same table and file id's as effectively same files so it should all stay intact right? (Solution split between multiple servers).

 

I was told it "should be ok" but would like a bit more reassurance than that before I implement in production.

 

Many thanks for your advice.
