Hi!!

I need to rename a host file without losing its historical data, obviously that nagios see the rename as a new file and it remove all the historical data about the old one.

Can you please help me ? it's really a sensitive situation

Have you tried renaming the hostname dir under perfdata?
locate perfdata
locate <name of host to be renamed>
I'm not sure if the .rrd or .xml files contain the hostname, so that might be worth looking into.

Hi Hanza,

It seems you would like to rename hostname of any device.

You can use "Bulk Renaming Tool" option in NagiosXI >>> Core Config Manager >>> Tools
