Change the location of a Minion

This section describes how you can change the location name of an existing Minion. Be aware, you have to change the “location” of your monitored nodes afterward accordingly.

If you want to rename or change the location name for a Minion use the following steps:

  1. Stop the Minion
  2. Edit the Minions requisition, and remove the Minion from it
  3. Sync the Minions requisition, choosing not to scan (so it’ll just update the database)
  4. On the Minion, update the location property in ${MINION_HOME}/etc/org.opennms.minion.controller.cfg
  5. Start the minion

Kudos to @UberPinguin for the write up in our chat :slight_smile:
