    1) Make a full backup of your XI 3.1 system (both database and file repository)

    2) Change the hostname

    3) Create a new SIA with all defaults servers using the CCM. Make sure that you instruct the CMS to use the same database connection as before. I ould advise you to change the default CMS and SIA ports.

    4) Run the "Update objects" command in the CCM on the new SIA

    5) Stop the old SIA and change the ports for the new SIA and the CMS to the default values (if required)

    6) Remove the old SIA in the CCM

    7) Go into to the CMC and try to delete any remaining servers from the old SIA.

    Please note that after completing the above workflow you have to reconfigure some of the servers' settings again in the CMC
