2. I wish to change my TSM nodename as I have a new computer

If you have acquired a new machine, you may wish to transfer an existing old HFS account/nodename to the new machine. If you are the registered contact for both the existing machine in question and the person responsible for backups of the new machine, then please contact hfs@ox.ac.uk with the names of both machines. Please be aware that in order to perform a rename, it is usual to delete the backups held under the old account. Exceptions to this may be made where, for example, data first needs to be transferred from the old machine to the new machine, or where the new machine has cloned the data from the old machine. In such cases the existing HFS account and backup filestore may be renamed together.
