    Make sure you

    - check profile parameters if the contain the full domain name (such as e. g. icm/* parameters)

    - change the name in the hosts file (depending on your OS)

    - reboot the machines to reflect that

    - reflect that in your IP configuration (on Unix e. g. /etc/resolv.conf)

    As long as the hostname is not changed it´s not that much work.
